The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Críona Ní Dhálaigh, today met with volunteers from the Salesforce Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Customer Success Platform.
The meeting took place at the Ronald McDonald House where Salesforce volunteers cooked lunch and dinner for the families of the seriously ill children receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.
The Ronald McDonald House is a leading charitable organisation providing accommodation, care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.
Employees of the Salesforce Foundation have been supporting the Ronald McDonald House since 2013 and, to date, have volunteered almost 920 hours of their time, as well as donating almost €10,000 to the charity.
Charlotte Finn VP, Programmes EMEA, Salesforce said, "Ronald McDonald House offers a life line to the families of children receiving care and treatment in hospitals and treatment centres not only in Ireland but across the world.
"Salesforce Foundation is proud to be associated with such an organisation that brings support, care and relief often in the hardest of times for a parent.
"Our employees have been volunteering with Ronald McDonald House for a number of years, enabling us not only to support this amazing charity, but to give back to the communities in which we live and work."
