For several years dispatchers have had the opportunity to give back to their community by donating $10.00 per quarter to wear jeans on the weekends. At the end of the year, the money collected is given to a local charity. For the past year, the dispatch center chose the Ronald McDonald House.
The Ronald McDonald House of the Red River Valley offers families a way to stay together, in proximity to the treatment hospital, and be comfortable and cared for during their stay. Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. The treatment may last a day, a month, or even longer.
Over 900 families per year receive services from the Ronald McDonald House of the Red River Valley. They have two local locations: 1234 Broadway and 1330 18 Ave S both in Fargo.
This year RRRDC was able to donate $1000.00 to this wonderful organization that provides home-cooked meals, private bedrooms, and playrooms for children.
