West Virginia State Farm Bureau buying groceries for Ronald McDonald houses
CABELL COUNTY, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
Members of West Virginia State Farm Bureau are spending Thursday shopping at grocery stores for a good cause.
The business collects money throughout the year and then buys groceries for three Ronald McDonald houses in the state.
On Thursday, employees spent about $2,000 to help stock the Huntington Ronald McDonald House.
They buy food that helps supply the house year-round, including frozen dinners and perishable food.
"It’s a great feeling,” said Eric Thomason, a field services representative. “There's a tremendous number of people who love to give back in some way.”
The Ronald McDonald House in Huntington can accommodate about 20 families at a time.
