Western Products, Inc. Donates to Ronald McDonald House of the Red River Valley
Fargo, ND—April 17, 2014—Western Products, a local and regional home improvement company recently donated a dozen wall mounted, flat panel televisions to the Ronald McDonald house of the Red River Valley. The TVs will be installed in homes run by the non-profit throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Almost $3500 in funds was raised by employees at company sponsored events, like raffles, pot-lucks and game boards. Erica Johnsrud of Ronald McDonald House said that the TVs “provide a sense of normalcy and routine for the families and anyone with small children know how important it is to have a routine!” Many Western Products employees have young families and can empathize with the families who stay in the Ronald McDonald Homes and made raising the funds for a symbol of comfort an easy goal to reach.
Raising money to support local charities is a cornerstone of Western Products and Affiliated Companies’ culture because it is imperative that businesses give back to the communities that support them. Past fundraisers have benefited local charities like Make A Wish, where enough funds were collaboratively raised to sponsor a entire child’s wish, March of Dimes and the United Way.
