Special Treat for Families at Ronald McDonald House

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

There is one more story of generosity to tell as the holiday season comes to a close. It took place recently at our local Ronald McDonald House.

13-year old Dakota Mangus and her family thought that, as a special holiday treat, they would bake cookies and brownies for those staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Most of those families were away from other family members this holiday season as they have a loved one staying the Driscoll Children's Hospital.

The idea came to Dakota as a tribute to the daughter of a family friend, who died at the age of five and spent much time at the Ronald McDonald House.

"It'd be nice for kids that are sick, that don't really have anything to do," Dakota said.

"It's always really fun when the community gets involved, working on things together," said Megan Beck, a staff member of the Ronald McDonald House. "We love it."

As a special treat, those staying at the Ronald McDonald House got the chance to decorate their own cookies and brownies.
