This week, Bayhealth volunteer coordinator Sharon Conley welcomed Ocean View Church of Christ members Sue Anstead and Kay Lyttle, who brought bags of toiletries to stock the Ronald McDonald Room at Bayhealth Kent General.

Anstead and Lyttle arrived with individually-packed bags of shampoo, face wash, soap, and other essentials to provide for families using the Ronald Room, located near the neonatal intensive care unit.

“Staying overnight here is often a last-minute thing. Parents don’t bring toiletries because they don’t know they’ll be staying, so donations like this make a huge difference to their comfort level,” Conley explained.

Anstead and Lyttle belong to Sisters in Service, a group of women at the church who donate time and energy to community service work. They noted that this was a special trip because several church families had benefitted from the Ronald room in past years.

Erin Ryan, Community and Family Room Coordinator for Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, was also on hand for the donation.
