In 2008 Bryan and Penny’s daughter Lindsey needed major back surgery. Lindsey was admitted to All Children’s Hospital is St. Petersburg, FL. Bryan and Penny were accommodated by Ronald McDonald House Charities with grace, care and love. It would have been extremely difficult to not have the local support of this organization. To this day Bryan and Penny annually support RMHC by adopting a room in one of their houses.
Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC can help address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community.
RMHC has local Chapters in more than 64 countries and regions with:
- 365 Ronald McDonald Houses
- 236 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms
- 50 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles
- Grants to non-profit organizations that also focus on the needs of children
- Chapters around the world creating country-specific programs
Since 1974, RMHC has helped address these needs every day, with 431,174 volunteers and staff members, through connections with medical communities around the world, partnerships with respected companies and their generous donors. They can’t do it without you.
Penny and Bryan Jameson support One Community Now / Pack-A-Sack by providing weekend meals for children in need in our local community.
One Community Now / Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids, is a kid-friendly school-based program designed to help address the problem of chronic hunger among school age children. They focus on recruiting local churches, businesses and organizations to adopt their local school and provide food for teacher-identified chronically hungry children over the weekend and extended breaks.
In 2017, 38,000 children were eligible for free and reduced meals in Pasco County Schools. These children receive breakfast and lunch every day they go to school. It is estimated that 15-20% of these children or nearly 7,000 are chronically hungry or food insecure and have little to no food to eat when they are not in school.
One Community Now Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids is designed for children who are not able to get sufficient food at home due to family struggles, neglect or other circumstances that prevent them from having regular access to food. Each sack contains 10-12 different food items designed to provide nutrition and calories for chronically hungry school children on weekends. Each sack of food costs approximately $4 -$5 and includes kid-friendly foods that require no preparation. Kids can just “open and eat”.
