Thank you to AE Smith and your team for playing your part in making Ronald McDonald House Monash a haven for families caring for their sick child –

Nickie Barlow, Executive Officer, RMH Monash

“With the amazing support of our corporate and community supporters and an incredible team of volunteers over the past 21 years, over 9,000 individual families have called our House ‘Home’,” said Nickie Barlow, Executive Officer at RMH Monash.

“Some families have stayed one night, others much longer. Our longest stay was a family who were here just short of 3 years.”

“Thank you to AE Smith and your team for playing your part in making Ronald McDonald House Monash a haven for families caring for their sick child,” said Nickie.

Andrew Permezel, CEO of AE Smith explains, “We choose to help Ronald McDonald House because we have tremendous admiration for the fantastic work they do. While commercial success is important, AE Smith’s core value is to help people.”

“Our help hopefully increases the capacity of Ronald McDonald Houses around the country to care for families in need and make their stay a little more comfortable. Happy birthday RMH Monash,” said Andrew.

At AE Smith, we believe in helping people in everything we do.

Providing free services to Ronald McDonald Houses around the country helps reinforce this belief:

RMH Parkville (Melbourne)
RMH Perth
RMH Townsville
RMH Westmead (Sydney)

Houses supported by AE Smith no longer receive bills for air conditioning service and maintenance, saving each House thousands of dollars every year.
