Strong Partnerships, Strong Communities
Giving back to our communities is part of the foundation that Nativ3 was built on. From the inception of the company, we always knew that a major part of our mission was going to include providing complementary digital services to charities and organizations across the nation.
Because of our expansion into the DC area, we felt moved to give back to the people who live in that community.
Members of our team are familiar with the positive impact that Ronald McDonald House Charities has had on their loved ones, and the integral role that volunteers play in its success.
Nativ3 is now working to create a volunteer signup and calendar system that is more user-friendly on both ends of the process. All services will be provided free of charge, from design to implementation.
Jon Crappel, President of Nativ3 shared, â€œWhen the opportunity arose for us to work with RMHCDC, it was an easy yes.â€
Keeping Families Together
While families with critically ill children are seeking treatment, they are often forced to take time away from work. Couple this loss of income with mounting medical bills, cost of accommodations, and the overall hardships of a childâ€™s illness, and families are forced to shoulder burdens that soon become too great to bear.
Since its inception in 1980, as the 16th Ronald McDonald House in the system, RMHCDC has worked in the Greater Washington, DC area to provide thousands of comfortable rooms, hot meals, and hope for ailing families. They are build on the simple idea that “nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child.”Â
Today, RMHCDC has two Ronald McDonald Houses, three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, and two Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles. Every year, they serve more than 10,500 children across these three programs.Â
