St. Alphonsus’ Knights of Columbus Council 10641 from Covington, Tennessee recently visited the Memphis area Ronald McDonald House at 535 Alabama Avenue. One of RMH’s ongoing fundraisers is collecting and recycling aluminum can pull-tabs. Approximately 45 lbs. of pull-tabs were presented to the house by Council 10641. Tab recycling contributes approximately $30, 000 per year to support house services.
One of the guiding principles of the Knights of Columbus is charity; services offered by RMH are invaluable and provided at no cost to families in need. The facilities and services were so impressive that an additional donation of $500 was presented to Ms. Nordtvedt who graciously hosted the tour of the house.
RMH provides numerous opportunities for volunteering and the Knights are looking forward to finding new ways to provide support in the future. Much of the operating expenses incurred by RMH are offset by volunteers and funded by private donations. Any organization interested in obtaining additional information may contact the volunteer coordinator at (901) 313-7479.
