• Coats Kicks Off Second Annual Pack the Pantry Food Drive This Week

    December 02, 2013 No comments

    Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) will host the second annual “Pack the Pantry” food drive with The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, from Tuesday, December 3 to Saturday, December 7 to support the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana.

    “During the holiday season there is often heavy focus on shopping and gift-giving and significantly less focus on service,” said Coats. “I encourage all Hoosiers to adopt another holiday tradition this year by joining my office and The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis to ‘Pack the Pantry’ and help make life a little easier for families at the Ronald McDonald House.”

    “The health of children and families is extremely important to us and we are happy to provide these much needed resources,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Everyone has the power to help others and we believe this is a strong life lesson parents can share with their children. The reward is immeasurable and we are honored to help.”

    “We rely on the generosity of our community to keep our pantries full for the more than 1,400 families who stay with us every year,” said Beth Johnson, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana. “We are grateful to Senator Dan Coats and The Children’s Museum for their support and for helping families during a very stressful time.”
