Posted by Vivian on November 17, 2018 at 4:20 PM

The Harker Heights Kiwanis Club presented a donation to the Temple Ronald McDonald House this weekend to help support the home away from home for many families with seriously ill children in local hospitals.

Members also cooked residents a pancake, bacon & sausage breakfast so it would be one less thing they would have to do for themselves. 14 families were in residence this particular weekend.
