The Ronald McDonald House® of Portland, Maine, Inc. received a very generous donation of new granite countertops from Blue Rock Stone Center and Hancock Lumber. “The new handsome black kitchen counters are dazzling, what a wonderful gift to give to the House and to the families it serves,” shared Meg Tucker and Thorne Conley, volunteers. The kitchen in the House is a community space where families can feel at home as they smell the love in the air with the aromas of a home cooked meal, fresh baked cookies, and so much more after a long stressful day at the hospital caring for loved ones. House Manager, Gabrielle Booth, says “This transformation helped create a refreshed and comforting environment for the Ronald McDonald House guest families.”
When asked about the donation, Jeremy Carpenter, Kitchen and Bath Designer with Home Again by Hancock Lumber, stated “Hancock Lumber is a firm believer of giving back to the local community and supporting Maine, so it was a no brainer for us to help out.”
