National Project 2021-2022
Ronald McDonald House Greek Division
This year, the Sons of Pericles have chosen the Greek Division of the Ronald McDonald House as this year's National Project. The Ronald McDonald House of New York provides temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families in a strong, supportive, and caring environment which encourages and nurtures the development of child-to-child and parent-to-parent support systems.
The Greek Division of the Ronald McDonald House has been In existence for more than 40 years and provides support services for families from Greece and Cyprus, as well as for Greek-Americans staying in New York City while battling cancer. The support of the local Greek community within the tri-state area has been an integral part of the Division’s ability to provide the financial resources, as well as awareness of the devastating effects of cancer.
