IAHSP Community Worldwide Staging Service Week
The Ft. Lauderdale IAHSP Chapter is pleased at how well our World Wide Staging Week event went at the Ronald McDonald House of Miami.
With our fundraising efforts we were able to bring in bedding for approximately 25 beds as well as providing new towels and bathroom needs for 13 bathrooms.
We brought in new accessories and art donated by PPI to freshen up the 2 family rooms. Two local hairdressers generously donated their time and provided dozens of haircuts to the families. As the stagers passed through the make shift salon it was nothing but smiles and laughs.
We finished up our week by holding a BBQ for all the families in residence.
We as Stagers enjoyed renewing bedrooms and refreshing the living areas but, by far our greatest joy was at the BBQ, when we were truly able to relate and share time with the families. We heard many stories and met people from all over the world. They were so grateful and enjoyed the welcome distraction from their day to day hospital routines.
It is so amazing to know that we were a part of making families with such aching hearts for their children smile and be happy, if only for a little while.
We are looking forward to next year!!
Our congratulations go out to all the participating IAHSP chapters around the country on a job well done!
