2018 Annual Report: Bob Ward and Bob Morrison

Bob Ward

Together with Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities since 1994

Longtime volunteer and former Board Chair Bob Ward has been instrumental over the years in ensuring Atlanta RMHC’s growth and success. For Ward, talking with families continues to reaffirm his commitment to the mission.

“You meet the people and hear what they are dealing with, and it really tugs at your heart. The passion develops, and the privilege of giving your time and resources to such a worthy cause is a no-brainer and worth every minute and dollar. I can’t think of anything better than helping families with sick and injured kids.”

Working together to build a vision

“I’ve watched us go from 16 to 81 rooms … with a greatly expanded mission that now includes a Care Mobile and a Family Room. This has all been possible due to incredible leadership from the staff and Board all along that journey.”

“We are all one team working together for the mission. I would describe the staff and the Board as a fully integrated team.”

Join us and continue the mission

“Go visit one of our Houses. Take a tour, serve a meal and meet the families. See the power of the mission in action, and you will get it.”

Bob Morrison

Together with Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities since 2003

In his time with Atlanta RMHC, Bob Morrison has worn many hats. From Board member to chair of the capital campaign that ultimately raised more than $16 million to build the Gatewood House, Morrison says seeing the good Atlanta RMHC does for so many families is inspiring.

“When you understand what Atlanta RMHC does and the meaningful impact the Charity has on so many lives, you’re hooked.  And when you visit one of the Houses and see what these places mean to kids, moms and dads it is very moving. There is quite an impressive community behind this Charity, and it is easy to understand why.”

Working together to keep families together

“I have a special interest in the development and well-being of children — particularly those who are physically, developmentally or financially disadvantaged.”

“Atlanta RMHC represents the epitome of serving the best interest of children and families, and at one of the most challenging and emotional times in their lives. The service the Charity provides not only allows families to be together when it matters most, that closeness has a profound impact on children’s healing as well.”

Join us and continue the mission

“Seeing is believing. It starts with a visit to one of the Houses. Once someone has seen sick and injured children and their families enjoying their stay at the House, they get it and there’s no convincing necessary.”
