Ronald McDonald House Charities© of the Four States honors a dedicated supporter of its organization.
A special brick dedication ceremony was held Thursday, Sept. 19, in honor of Tamko Building Products, Joplin, Mo. Tamko is celebrating its 75th anniversary, and RMHC representatives wanted to celebrate the company’s ongoing support of the charity.
Annette Thurston, RMHC’s executive director, says Tamko has been a partner with the charity since the house first opened, and the dedication ceremony was about more than a brick.
“Today was a day to emphasize family—the family of the Humphreys and the family of Ronald McDonald House,” Thurston explained. “That sense of family that carries through makes our community what it is and is what we all strive for.”
Representatives from Tamko and the Humphreys family, who lead the company, were present for the ceremony. The brick will be permanently placed in the Ronald McDonald House’s garden patio.
