31 Mar JPMorgan gives $25,000 to Ronald McDonald House in Charleston
CHARLESTON, WV— JPMorgan Chase invested $25,000 into Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern West Virginia (RMHC of Southern West Virginia) to help families caring for their critically ill or injured children have a place of rest and support close to the hospital.
On Wednesday, March 30, Michelle Wittekind, Vice President, JPMorgan Chase, presented RMHC of Southern West Virginia Brooke Hylbert, Executive Director, with a check. The $25,000 investment will help families with sick or injured children in the hospital have a place to stay while they are far from home.
“We provide a home away from home to hundreds of families caring for their hospitalized children each year – at no cost to them,” said Hylbert. “The generous investment made by JPMorgan Chase helps to cover the cost of a stay for more than 300 nights at our Ronald McDonald House, alleviating the financial stress so many families face when caring for a hospitalized child.”
RMHC of Southern West Virginia relies on community support to serve families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. The local team at Chase has supported RMHC of Southern West Virginia since 2018 by participating in volunteer programs and special events.
“Several members of our team volunteer with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern West Virginia and many of us have friends and family who have benefited from the services they provide,” said Wittekind. “We are proud to support an organization that keeps families close to their ill or injured children in our area hospitals.”
