Turner Construction Company of the Carolinas

Just like any house, the Ronald McDonald House, from time to time, needs a little maintenance and upkeep. We strive make sure our families are comfortable during their stay and maintaining our guest rooms and facilities can sometimes take extra man power. Recently, Turner Construction Company of the Carolinas came to the House for an afternoon to help us with some special projects.  They helped us with painting and dry-wall in the bathrooms to set new light fixtures and also helped us assemble new patio benches. Now that spring is in the air our families are enjoying spending time outdoors.  We want to give a special thank you to Turner Construction of the Carolinas!

Thank You Francie Panzetta

Thank You Francie Panzetta

It is truly special when our supporters take the time to give back to the House. There are many ways our community supports us. Recently, Francie Panzetta dropped by the House to present us with a check towards our “Share Your Heart” campaign in February. As an AVON representative, this check was a result of donations provided by her percentage of sales from an AVON campaign. This is a wonderful example of giving back to the House. For more information on how you can give back or volunteer, please contact us at (864) 235-0506.
