Food Drive in U.S.
During the month of May, CSR NA sponsored a food donation drive to benefit families being helped by the Women's Center of Wake County. The collection ran from April 10 – May 15 and helped to restock the Women's Center pantry with much needed food and toiletry items.

Further in July, a group from KPIT Raleigh employees headed to the Ronald McDonald house of Durham, NC to prepare and serve dinner to the 75 families currently being helped by the organization. The KPIT team prepared and served pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, vegetables and lots of dessert to what turned out to be a very appreciative group of families. In March this year, a group visited Ronald McDonald House where they prepared and served lunch to families of sick children staying at the facility. All food items and paper products were also donated by the team.

In December 2015 we organized a holiday toy drive where toys were collected to benefit the Women's Center of Wake County. The group was able to collect over 75 new toys which were donated to a number of extremely thankful families. The Women's Center of Wake County provides case management, financial assistance counseling, nutrition assistance, short term shelter, and health education and testing services to single women and women with families.

Adopt-A-Room Program - Ronald McDonald House of Durham
Ronald McDonald House of Durham is a 55 bedroom facility that serves upwards of 950 families per year. The organization provides a "home away from home" for families whose children are receiving life-saving treatment at the nearby Duke Children's Hospital.

Ronald McDonald House asks families to give $10 for each night they stay, however, they never turn a family away who cannot afford to pay the rent, which is well over 75% of the families. The actual cost to the organization per room per night is $100. As an Adopt-A-Room sponsor, KPIT sponsored the cost of one room, which could be utilized for short-term stays in a bedroom or children who are receiving ongoing medical support, such as after a transplant or during cancer treatments.

The above sponsorship would be in addition to the initiatives that the Raleigh team has already planned with Ronald McDonald House. We continue serving meals and supporting Ronald McDonald house as we develop our partnership with them moving forward. To date we have approximately 50 employees who regularly participate in "items in need" collection drives for Ronald McDonald House. Additionally approximately 15 employees volunteer for prep and serve events; some donating food items and others donating time to actually prepare and serve the meals at the house.
