40 From Our 40: Ruthann Lord

Ruthann Lord and husbandRuthann Lord has been a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House since 1989, working Monday mornings since she started. Ruthann has a professional background in social work and child welfare, so volunteering at the House felt like a perfect fit.

On her experience with the House and its guests, Ruthann shares, “I’m always amazed at how grateful families are for the services we provide. Even in crisis they take the time to thank us. I have to admit, 33 years have gone by quickly. I have met so many wonderful people that I would not have otherwise met were it not for my time here at the House.”
