Be a Warrior! Support Ronald McDonald House Today…

The Seattle Ronald McDonald House provides a “home-away-from-home” to help support seriously ill children and their families. The House opened in 1983 and depends on charitable donations & volunteer support from many individuals, corporations and foundations for their continued existence.

In 2003, RMH quadrupled the House’s capacity to 80 guests per night. In 2013, they provided almost 27,000 nights of housing to nearly 550 families. They offer the House to the families of any seriously ill children who live at least 45 miles away while undergoing treatment at Seattle Children’s. RMHC receives no government funding, but relies on the generosity of the private sector.

How can you help? Restock the house pantry! ECM is now collecting donations today through April 15, 2015.

What we need:

-Canned beans: refried or baked
-Cup o noodles or Top Ramen
-Boxed rice and pasta meal helpers: Pasta Roni, Hamburger Helper, Rice-a-Roni
-Microwave popcorn
-Alfredo pasta sauce
-Canned meats: salmon, chicken, beef, SPAM
-Canned fruit: peaches, pears, fruit cocktail, pineapple, mandarin oranges

*All canned goods must be 16 oz or smaller. Also, because the children are immune compromised, we ask that all food donations are new, coming directly from a store rather than people’s home pantry.

Hawks Have High Playoff Hopes

The Seahawks are back in the hunt this year after a remarkable comeback to their 3 & 3 start to the season! After clinching the NFC West #1 seed, they had a bye this last week and will play this upcoming Saturday, January 10th against the North Carolina Panthers.

The game will be televised on Fox and starts at 5:15pm our time. The Hawks have guaranteed themselves home field advantage at the "Clink" throughout the playoffs. The winner of this game will play the winner of the Green Bay – Dallas game the following week for the NFC Championship.

I don't know about ya'll, but I'm definitely feeling that post season energy make it's way back to the Seattle area! We will not be having this weeks game in the clubhouse, but if the Hawks win, I assure you we will have the NFC Championship game on in full force the following Sunday!

GO HAWKS!
