River Street Sweets Presents $1,973 To Local Ronald McDonald House


Savannah, GA — River Street Sweets, a Savannah candy company with a 50-year history, has made a donation of $1,973 to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire (RMHC). This donation commemorates the year River Street Sweets was established — 1973.

“We are delighted to offer our support to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire,” says Jennifer Strickland, co-owner of River Street Sweets. “This non-profit organization provides a restful, comfortable place for children and their families to find refuge and support as they receive medical treatment at our nearby hospitals. This home away from home is crucial and we can only imagine the many challenges these families face, and we’re dedicated to alleviating their burdens in this special way.”

“At RMHC, we are committed to easing the burden of medical care by providing practical assistance and emotional support,” notes RMHC Executive Director Bill Sorochak. “We are so grateful to River Street Sweets for their generous donation, which will help us provide much-needed support to families of children receiving medical care.”

The company says the 50th anniversary donation continues to highlight the Strickland family’s commitment to its community and philanthropy. In addition to supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities, River Street Sweets also supports a variety of other local organizations including Feeding America’s Kids Cafe, the Caretta Research Project, and Senior Citizens, Inc.
