Thanks to a very generous grant from the Avangrid Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House of CT has been able to complete the backyard shading trellises for our families to enjoy. The shading trellises provide our families an outdoor space where they can gather for meals, share conversation with other families and relax from the stresses and uncertainties that they face daily.
“The Avangrid Foundation is honored to be a small part of helping realize ‘the house that love built,’” said Nicole Licata Grant, Director. “Our reach and commitment to help is both local and global, and here that happens in the most unconditional way in service of children and families.”
The shading trellises are the final detail in creating an enjoyable, home-like outdoor space for our families. Our backyard now has an outdoor patio with seating, BBQ grill, playground with handicap-accessible swings and family porch swing, green space to run, and of course, shade.
