Population food sales at North Kern State Prison (NKSP) generated $8,460 for the Ronald McDonald House. Prison staff presented a check to the nonprofit organization on June 8.
The organization provides a place to stay for families who have a severely ill child in the hospital, all at no cost to the family.
Acting NKSP Warden Kevin Hixon said he’s impressed with the work done by the Ronald McDonald House.
“(House director) Scarlett Sabin showed my team and I the renovated Ronald McDonald House. You can clearly see their dedication and commitment of keeping families close to their loved ones. They provide them with a sense of hope, courage, and joy,” said Hixon. “I am proud to be supporting the Ronald McDonald House and know that they will make a positive difference in the Central Valley.”
