Every year, Kevin Torresan, his family and the crew at Riverina Nursery donate goods for Ronald McDonald House Randwick.

Mr Torresan and his family experienced the good work of the Ronald McDonald House when their son was born.

“Our son was diagnosed with a brain condition when he was 10 weeks old, so it’s something we’ve used ourselves,” Mr Torresan said.

“Being able to spend time with other families experiencing a similar journey is something that can be really helpful as well.”

Ronald McDonald House Randwick has been providing up to 32 families with accommodation each night since opening in 1991.

It provides cheap accommodation for patients and their families close to Sydney Children’s Hospital. 

Mr Torresan said the House was often a “home way from home”.

“We started doing the drive about 13 years ago. We collect goods from the Ronald McDonald wishlist.”

MIA residents can look at the list online. Any donations can be dropped off at the Riverina Nursery. 

“We get a pretty good community response every year.” 

The cut-off for donations is Monday, December 11. A copy of the wishlist is available from www.riverinanursery.com.au. Any items can be dropped off to 160 Mackay Avenue, Yoogali
