LIBOR makes room for more at treatment facility.
Realtors from Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties joined together to raise the funds and were on hand at the Ronald McDonald House Lights of Love celebration during the holiday season to commemorate the donation.
"This is the second room that LIBOR has sponsored at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island," said Gil Picard, president of LIBOR.
The Realtor[R] support is part of LIBOR's ongoing philanthropic program titled "We're More Than Realtors[R]. It is coordinated by the Long Island Board of Realtors (LIBOR) and their public relations committee. The campaign showcases the support real estate agents provide to the local community and to nonprofit organizations on Long Island throughout the year.
"Our members want to make a difference in this community and we are doing so helping the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island create a home-away-from-home for children undergoing medical treatment and their families," Picard continued.
The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island recently initiated a capital campaign to double the size of the facility. "The generous contribution by LIBOR helps us to meet our goal by providing a comfortable and supportive environment that helps families through their most difficult time," said Stacie Rodriguez, president of Ronald McDonald House Long Island.
