Ronald McDonald will be helping clean the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte and there will be no clowning around. He’ll surprise families by washing the windows of the House with Squeegee Pros, a locally-owned professional window and exterior cleaning service who are donating their services to the Ronald McDonald House. Squeegee Pros technicians will sport red noses as they help Ronald with his cleaning chores.
“We are thrilled that Ronald is stopping by the House” said Mona Johnson-Gibson, Executive Director at the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. “We think families and patients will get a kick to watch him wash the windows from their rooms . He really lifts the spirits of the families that stay at the House and provides some lighthearted fun.”
“Squeegee Pros is proud to support the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte and we’re excited about the event,” said Squeegee Pros President, Jim DuBois. It’s about time we had someone as tall as Ronald to get way up in the window corners. Just need to be sure he doesn’t kick over any buckets with those clodhoppers.”
Ronald will be at the House from 9:00am-10:30am on September 17th.
