It can be devastating, and the Ronald McDonald House does an incredible job alleviating some of the pain,” said Eric Snyder, principal for Talonvest. “We are glad to be part of such a meaningful community effort.”
In addition to financial support, Talonvest employees participate each year in the Walk for Kids event and deliver meals to families staying in homes provided by the charity. The real estate adviser has sponsored one of 20 guest rooms through the charity’s “Adopt a Room” partnership program for several years, according to the release. As part of the program, companies provide financial support to each family that sleeps in the “adopted” room during the year.
“Our company was founded on the belief that we have a responsibility to give back time and resources within our community,” added Tom Sherlock, a Talonvest principal. “The Orange County Ronald McDonald House is a special place with an extraordinary staff, and helping out in our small way is an honor.”
