Before we start stuffing the bags we will talk to the families about the Ronald McDonald House and give the kids a chance to say what they brought and why. 

Please bring at least 20 items to include in the bags. All items must be new and in packaging. No used items, homemade food or foods containing peanuts/tree nuts.
