AmeriHealth New Jersey supports Ronald McDonald House Charities through sponsorship of the 9th Annual Change the Luck of a Child telethon

Cranbury, NJ, March 26, 2018 — AmeriHealth New Jersey is proud to sponsor the 9th annual Change the Luck of a Child Telethon, which will broadcast live on CBS 3 and the CW Philly tomorrow, March 27. The annual fundraiser supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region including the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey.

“AmeriHealth New Jersey commends the Ronald McDonald House Charities for their dedication to helping families who are facing such difficult circumstances,” said AmeriHealth New Jersey President Mike Munoz. “The support they provide is remarkable and touches the lives of so many families not only in our region, but across the country.”

Munoz will be answering phones during the telethon to collect donations on Tuesday, alongside AmeriHealth New Jersey associates who regularly volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey. One of those associates is Koreana Iman-Sample, product manager for AmeriHealth New Jersey. Iman-Sample leads a monthly service project on behalf of the company to prepare home-cooked meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey.

“These families are going through so much, and they are doing it all while away from their homes,” said Iman-Sample. “So we try to add a touch of home to the meals we cook each month, and it’s truly rewarding to see these parents come together and enjoy a meal so they can relax and recharge, even if just for a short while.”

Last year, the Change the Luck of a Child Telethon raised over $1.2 million dollars to support the four local Ronald McDonald Houses, as well as a number of Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in hospitals throughout the region and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, which delivers diagnostic, preventative and restorative dental care at no cost to qualified children, aged one and up.
