Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks

As part of my “Causes that I Support” initiative I am proud to introduce the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks to my fellow detectorists and followers.  These programs deserve recognition for their work in our communities.  It doesn’t take much to help others and even our found change or pop tabs helps!

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children in the Ozarks. Our first priority is to provide a comfortable home environment for families when their seriously-ill or injured child is in a hospital far from home. In 1988, our cornerstone project, the Ronald McDonald House near Cox South opened and a second House was added inside Mercy Kids 2012.

More than 800 families come to our two Springfield Ronald McDonald Houses each year and find love, care, compassion and hope as their child faces challenges no child should face.The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, fondly known as the “Tooth Truck”, was founded and began treating patients in 2002. The Tooth Truck provides dental treatment and prevention education for at-risk children, primarily in school-based settings.

As an extension of the Tooth Truck, the Healthy Smiles Academy began in 2011 and is an on-site brushing program that partners with local school districts to teach pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students the importance of brushing their teeth.As our future unfolds, our vision will continue to include strong investigation of the communities we serve, with consideration of increasing ways we can help children become healthier and stronger, and to help their lights shine brighter.

In a spirit of service, we are deeply committed to our roles as “thoughtful stewards” of Ronald McDonald House Charities programs and resources. This level of commitment is our standard, and an ideal we all constantly strive for… as board members, professional staff, and volunteers.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ which means necessity or need can encourage inventive solutions to challenging situations.

Fellow metal detectorist “Trickworm” shared his solution to saving over $60.00 when he designed this Lesche Sheath and Pro-Pointer Combo. You can also do this simple modification yourself, and it won’t cost you additional money for an aftermarket sheath!

Digger Pro-Pointer Combo sheath

This Do It Yourself project merely requires determining the angle that suits your needs for easily removing the pinpointer without hitting the guard on your digger.

Then, just sew your Garrett Pro-Pointer sheath to your digger sheath, and you have an awesome combination that keeps all of your diggin’ tools in one easy to reach place.

That means less fumbling around for your digger or pinpointer and more goodies in the pouch ! Tip: Be sure to only sew on the edges.

Enjoy my friends!
