JJ & Leo Kissinger, Peter, Andrew, & Aiden Barfoot
We go all in because the Ronald McDonald House goes all in for families in crisis. The mission of Side-by-Side is sharing laughter, rest, and togetherness with families who have a seriously ill child. Whether we are serving meals to RMHC residents, hosting crafts or activities (like BINGO), connecting families to our Family Support program, enrolling kids in Side-by-Side Preschool, or welcoming RMHC families to Camp Side-by-Side or Winter Weekend, we love partnering with the RMHC team to make sure families know they are not alone.
Andrew has volunteered with Side-by-Side for nearly 20 years. His son Aiden is 2 years old and Peter is 2 months old.
JJ is in his eighth year as the Director of Side-by-Side. His son Leo is 2 years old.
