VALHALLA—A contingent of HGAR Realtors recently volunteered their morning to make breakfast and lunch, clean up, and organize toys at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley in Valhalla. The volunteer events, set up by members of the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation’s Program Committee, go hand-in-hand with the Foundation’s fundraising efforts.

Located next to the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House offers families with critically ill and traumatically injured children an atmosphere of comfort, hope and courage, keeping them close to the care and resources they need. The House has 12 bedrooms that are filled almost every night. It also provides meals, laundry and respite services for families during their stay.

The House has helped more than 1,800 families since it first opened in 2011.

Upcoming HGRF volunteer events this year are scheduled at Caritas of Port Chester, Green Chimneys in Brewster, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley in Cornwall-on-Hudson and The Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry.

Anyone interested in volunteering at these events should visit for more information and registration.
