09 Nov Global Payments Adopts Kitchen at Ronald McDonald House Near Scottish Rite
Thank you to our friends at Global Payments for adopting our kitchen at our Ronald McDonald House near Scottish Rite.
“A kitchen is the heartbeat of the home because it plays a strong role in bringing together families and friends. Of course, kitchens help serve healthy and nourishing meals, but more importantly they act as a gathering place, offering a sense of comfort and community,” says Emily J. Edmonds, vice president of external communications at Global Payments, adding being able to help create a sense of home for these families led to Global Payments’ decision to adopt the kitchen.
“One of Global Payments’ philanthropic pillars is Health & Wellness; working and supporting organizations so that people have the necessary resources to live healthy, comfortable, and productive lives,” Edmonds says.
“The mission of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities goes well with their company’s philanthropic efforts,” Edmonds says. Their team shares Atlanta RMHC’s passion and enthusiasm to make a difference in the lives of others, especially in the communities where their employees live and work.
“Atlanta RMHC plays such a vital role in helping families navigate extremely difficult and emotional situations, serving as their home-away-from-home during an unthinkable crisis,” Edmonds says.
Global Payments strives to integrate corporate citizenship into every aspect of their company. The hope is that establishing partnerships with organizations like Atlanta RMHC will empower and encourage their team members and others to serve their communities.
“Families should not have to think or worry about where they will stay or where their next meal is coming from when their child is facing a life-threatening illness.” Edmonds says. “Atlanta RMHC does an amazing job in providing necessary support in times of crisis, and we are proud to partner with an organization that is actively improving the lives of others.”
