Volunteerism Spotlight: Ronald McDonald House of Southern Arizona

May 14, 2024

On the eve of What If Media Group’s recent company retreat to Scottsdale, 11 of our employees traveled to Tucson to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern Arizona, an organization that offers housing, transportation, and support to families whose children require constant access to medical care. Our team spent a few hours preparing and serving meals to families and greeted them as they came to dinner. 

“It was clear from the moment we stepped into the Ronald McDonald House just how impactful a place it is for the families that stay there,” said Mackenzie Rich, Account Manager. “It was such a special experience, and on top of that, we had a blast.”

In 2022, What If Media Group donated an all-expenses-paid weekend trip to Tanque Verde Dude Ranch in Tucson for over 25 Ronald McDonald House families. Our team was given the chance to meet some of those same families in person, and found they still remember the outing fondly.

“I knew we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner with them again,” said Mindy Thompson, our SVP of Human Resources. “Ronald McDonald House is showing up in an incredible way for families who are at their most vulnerable. I found myself getting emotional several times over the course of the day: about the beautiful home they’ve created, about the community I witnessed, about the way our What If Media Group team enthusiastically showed up and worked so hard and so well together. I will never forget it.” 

In addition to volunteering, What If made another generous donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona. We are so proud to make an impactful difference in our communities by contributing to organizations and causes like this. In 2023, we donated over $75,000 to a number of charities, most of which were picked by our employees.
