                          Last April Ronald McDonald House Charities
                          received a wonderful surprise when Mr. Joseph
                          Calvey, Sr. stopped by the Lewis St. House with
                          his son, Joey. Joey was interested in doing a
                          service project for the House and we took them
                          both on a tour. While on the tour, Mr. Calvey
                          noticed that the windows in the hallways were
                          quite warm. He asked if we had problems
                          with heat during the summer months and be-

                          big YES! He then informed us that he owned
                          Mother’s Window Tint and would be interested
                          in donating the tint and installation for the entire very special thanks to Joseph Calvey, Sr. for his

                                    Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Antonio
                                    is proud to announce the arrival of two new addi-
                                    tions to our family - two new Family Rooms in
                                    Laredo, Texas! The first Family Room, which opened
                                    August 5th, is located at Doctors Hospital inside of
                                    their Neonatal ICU. The Second room, located in
                                    Laredo Medical Center Hospital, is situated next to
                                    both the PICU and NICU.

                                    The Family Rooms will serve as respite spaces for
      Laredo Medical Center        families utilizing these hospitals with their pediatric          Doctors Hospital of Laredo
patients. They will allow parents an opportunity to rest, relax and collect themselves while still being a stones throw away
from their children. This, in, turn, will enable them to better focus on the recovery of their loved ones. The new Family
Rooms are equipped with televisions, washers and dryers, snacks and tons of comfy furniture. Priscilla Salinas, Director of
Marketing Business Development stated, “We are happy to partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Anto-
nio on this wonderful resource that will benefit the families of Laredo”. The rooms will be over seen by hospital staff and
volunteers. “The room has been a blessing to our patients and their families,” said David Gonzalez, Sr., Community Rela-
tions Coordinator of Doctor’s Hospital.

We are honored to include these two extraordinary medical facilities in our Ronald McDonald House family and look
forward to a long partnership with the Laredo community to better the experiences of those families who need us most.
