Thompson Creek Window Company is proud to announce its partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Falls Church, VA, Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and wellbeing of children. RMHC focuses on the critical needs of children, providing a place to rest and refresh during their hospital care and any other support for families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
As a Mainstay Supplier of the RMHC of DC, Thompson Creek is providing a guest suite for families for an entire year, helping cover the fees it costs to run the House operations. Thompson Creek is also a Caring Partner for the RMHC of Baltimore, supporting capital improvements for the current facility and the expansion for future growth. As the Mid-Atlantic region’s premier home improvement replacement products company, Thompson Creek also donated and installed 550 feet of gutter for the Falls Church, VA House and four windows for the Baltimore House. Thompson Creek has been collecting can pull tabs to support the program, signed up to prepare meals for families and also will be running the Red Shoe Shuffle 5K next year.
“It is a great honor to partner with the Ronald McDonald House Charities to allow for our employees to volunteer their time, make a difference and spread awareness of all the great that comes out of this organization”, said Thompson Creek CEO Rick Wuest.
