Ronald McDonald House is a nonprofit that provides lodging for families who have a child receiving treatment at area hospitals.
“There are plenty of people who find themselves suddenly away from their home with a child needing medical attention,” said Scott Smith, store manager at Dillard’s. “We want to be a partner in the effort to give these stressed families comfort. The cookbooks make wonderful hostess gifts, holiday presents or just guilty pleasures for anyone who loves to cook, bake or entertain. If we sell just 100 more than we did in 2015, we’ll be able to host about 600 nights for families who need lodging while their child is in the hospital.”
The special edition holiday Southern Living cookbook includes nearly 200 recipes and dozens of decorating ideas.
In 2015, the community purchased enough cookbooks to allow the store to donate $4,969 to the Reno Ronald McDonald House®, which helped cover the cost of nearly 497 nights for guest families.
“We’ve seen over the years how food brings people together,” said Marty Ozer, executive director of RMHC® Northern Nevada. “Whether you’re cooking a recipe for your family or for our guests as part of our Chef Program, you’ll be connecting families when they need to be together the most. In this holiday season, nothing could be more important.”
