$1,000 to UPenn Vet School in CT's Memory

Thank you so much for giving to the "Christi Thomas Memorial Fund!"A $1,000 donation in honor of the volunteers who make the Pet’s Vet program at the Ronald McDonald House possible was awarded to the University of Penn’s Vet School on February 20th. As many know, very special memories of Christi were created for us through the Vets’ Pet Program as well as at the Vet Hospital where they would allow Christi to have special tours and to “assist” with the animals’ care. It therefore has a very special place in our hearts and we are grateful they have renamed it the "Christi Thomas Vets' Pets Program!"

The volunteers who bring their pets to the Philly Ronald McDonald House are remarkable. Christi (and Shayla) loved the program. It always raised their spirits to see a pet at the house. (Christi often missed her two cats while she had to be away from home). A photo memory of each visit remains a prized keepsake for our family.

Christi lives on in so very many people. What wonderful news. I am sure this means a lot to the Philly RMH families too.

Hugs,
Olivia

How cool that you've donated to the UPenn Vet School! As the mom to one veterinary nurse and another son who aspires to be a vet, this is especially exciting news!
How sweet that so much is done in Christi's honor. Oh Angela, she is certainly smiling so big from Heaven!
