Ronald McDonald Food Program searching for more help

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Ronald McDonald Food Program needs donations to help out families.
The Program accepts volunteers every day to help do small tasks for families going through difficult times. And sometimes just  being there gives these families a reason to smile.

"When you think about what these families are going through, this is just a small thing we can do to help these families. They have a lot on their mind and a lot they're going through and for us to be here and provide a meal for them it's small thing we can do," says Brian Ellefson.

Joseph Collins - "It makes me feel blessed and happy to know that some people out there think enough of us to take time out of their busy schedule to come and volunteer and cook a hot meal. No matter what it is it's a simple meal but for us it's a blessing because they don't have to do that," says Joseph Collins.

If you would like to help, here are the two links.
