"It means a lot to be able to give back to those who live their lives serving others," said Jack Walker, District Manager at Conn's HomePlus. "For more than 34 years, Ronald McDonald House has been caring for children and their families. This donation is a small token of our appreciation for their unwavering selflessness. The team at Conn's HomePlus hopes it makes the residents feel a little closer to home while in San Antonio."

The appliances were delivered on Tuesday, April 30 to the Ronald McDonald House main office on Sid Katz. With the help of the Conn's HomePlus delivery team, appliances were distributed and installed across four Ronald McDonald House facilities in San Antonio.

"Each family that enters our doors enters our hearts and inspires us with their strength," said Kristy Walston, Chief Development Officer at Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Antonio. "In 2018 in San Antonio, we were able to provide over 14,000 nights of comfort, privacy, security, support and respite from the hospital for our families during the most challenging time imaginable. This would not be possible without the love and incredible generosity from organizations like Conn's HomePlus. Tonight our families will be able to sleep on freshly laundered sheets and cook their favorite meal in their Home Away From Home because of this incredible donation."

Initiatives facilitated through Conn's Cares, including more than $660,000 in donated funds and products, have been implemented by Conn's HomePlus for local, community-based, charitable organizations since the program's inception.
