Mr. Rogers, Care Mobile Driver, Receives Hope & Will Award from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
Known for his steadfast work ethic and welcoming spirit, Forrest Rogers, the driver of our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, never misses an opportunity to serve kids. For his steadfastness, Mr. Rogers received the Children Healthcare of Atlanta’s Hope & Will Award in December.
As the driver of the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile — a special mobile medical clinic provided in collaboration between Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities and Hughes Spalding — Forrest helps bring asthma care to students at 11 schools in the Atlanta area.
“Mr. Rogers truly has a heart for helping others and it shows,” says Beth Howell, President and CEO of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities. “The kindness and concern he demonstrates helps our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile make an even greater impact on our students. We congratulate him on being recognized for his compassionate service.”
Passionate about kids, Mr. Rogers has a gift for building relationships with the children who visit the Care Mobile. “It can be scary to attend a clinic appointment without a parent present,” his nominator said. “But after meeting Mr. Rogers, many of our patients are eager to return.”
This dedicated driver cares deeply for the students the Care Mobile team treats—and he is a strong advocate for the services they provide.
“Mr. Rogers never misses an opportunity to promote the Care Mobile,” his nominator said. “He stops at nothing to make sure students in our community have accessible asthma care.”
The examples of Mr. Rogers “believing we can make a difference” don’t stop there — he is always going out of his way to do small acts of kindness for our patients, including keeping a stash of donated socks for students who come to the mobile clinic without them.
That is just the kind of person Mr. Rogers is—caring, passionate, dedicated — and committed to helping kids breathe easier, one clinic visit at a time.
