ALACHUA ‒ On June 7 members of the Turkey Creek Lions Club joined together at the Turkey Creek playground to receive and assemble items collected in support of the Ronald McDonald House. Coloring books for children and adults, stickers, activity books, crossword puzzles and Sudoku books, sketch pads and much more were collected to help support families battling childhood cancer.
Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing, basic amenities and support to families with children receiving treatment at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital.
Parents and family members, as well as children dealing with cancer, spend a great deal of time at the hospital waiting for test results, procedures and meetings with doctors. Having crayons, pencils, markers and books helps pass the time and keeps up their spirits.
Turkey Creek Lions Club members are thankful to area residents who donated to help out these families as they deal with one of the worst issues a family can face.
