Pittmans Mark 20 Years of Volunteering

What started 20 years ago as a way to help a member of their church congregation is now a monthly tradition for Mike and Kay Pittman.

In 1994 a member of their church was staying at Ronald McDonald House of Memphis while receiving treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and they decided to get a group together and travel from West Point, Miss., to cook a meal for the families at Ronald McDonald House.

The initial group was just Mike, Kay and two friends. Today, 20 years later, they partner with different groups and churches each month to help cook the meal and conduct activities for the families. 

“It’s a wonderful place to serve people from around the world and build relationships,” Kay said. “This place has really changed our lives.”

A typical Pittman dinner includes boneless chicken, pork chops, hot dogs, twice baked potato, green beans, vegetable casserole and dessert.

“We really just want to do whatever we can to make a day in the lives of these families a little easier,” Kay said. “We love every family that we have ever met here.”

Thank you Mike and Kay for supporting Ronald McDonald House of Memphis for 20 years.
