Birthday Blessings on September 18, SJ’s Seventh Birthday
Every year on September 18, “Team SJ” comes to the Ronald McDonald House of South Louisiana to remember and celebrate SJ’s birthday. Born prematurely in 2012 at 23 weeks, S.J. lived only six weeks, and his parents Jessica and Scott Baker of Biloxi, MS were grateful to be able to stay at Ronald McDonald House during that time. They’ve been returning to RMHC-SLA every year on his birthday, with each year the donation of items for the food pantry, kitchen/bathroom supplies, by Team SJ getting bigger and bigger.
This year they brought with them over $1,400 of donated food and supplies, a year’s collection of pop tabs for recycling, and are preparing a home-cooked meal for our families. A big thank you goes to the Baker family and friends, including PDQ Printing who held a donation drive. Thanks for giving back and including us in the celebration of SJ’s life!
