SmarTravel Makes Donation to Ronald McDonald House of Indiana as Part of Pantry Partnership

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 29, 2012) – SmarTravel, a company which sells vacations by the week at wholesale prices, makes donation after a month-long partnership with Ronald McDonald House of Indiana.

The Ronald McDonald House of Indiana provides a safe haven and home-away-from-home for parents and siblings of seriously ill or injured children. Since opening their doors in 1982, they’ve housed more than 35,000 families. Because of their large number of guests, the organization is constantly looking for household items to be donated.

SmarTravel stepped up to become the official Pantry Partner for Ronald McDonald House of Indiana for the month of August. “No local charity is quite like the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana,” said David Wise, president of SmarTravel. “This organization helps to better the lives of people who are already going through so much, making sure that a place to stay is not added to their list of worries. At SmarTravel, we’ve always been focused on giving back to organizations that are partners with our community. We’re happy we can now call ourselves a partner to the Ronald McDonald House.”

SmarTravel donated more than 500 dollars worth of items to the facility, including pillows, bottled water, plastic dishes and more. “We rely on the community to help us meet the needs of the families we serve,” said Beth Johnson, executive director at Ronald McDonald House of Indiana. “Companies like SmarTravel ensure we’re able to ease some of the burden families with critically ill children face. We know that children heal faster when their families can be with them. The goal is to make sure we enable families to stay near their children without having to worry about a thing other than their loved one.”
