Ronald McDonald gets a hand from F’ville cops
The Fayetteville Police Department will be serving as a drop-off point for aluminum can tabs which will be turned over to the Ronald McDonald House to benefit their charity. The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.
The Ronald McDonald House charities also operate temporary homes for families of children who are critically ill. The Fayetteville Police Department is conducting this charitable operation in memory of Ava Scruggs-Roberson the infant grandchild of Donna Phillips, the Administrative Assistant to the Chief of the Fayetteville Police Department.
Ava passed away February 18, 2009 at 8 days old. Phillips stated the Ronald McDonald House was an incredible blessing to their family during Ava’s illness. Anyone wishing to contribute is encouraged to drop off their aluminum can tabs (tabs only) at the collection box which is located in the lobby of the Fayetteville Police Department at 760 Jimmie Mayfield Boulevard.
