WEST MONROE, La. (3/5/2020) — Exceptional, wonderful, phenomenal and significant— all of these words are synonyms for remarkable, and Susan Allain says all of these words describe her dear friend, Georgia Street.
“She always came and volunteered and gave of her time and talents and she’s been involved in every arts and cultural and civic organization in town.”
Georgia is the Executive Director of Monroe’s Ronald McDonald House, a non profit she’s worked with for 31 years, helping those in their greatest times of need.
“The Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families who have children in the hospital and they are able to stay here.. they can feel like they are at home and rejuvenate their spirits…”, says Georgia.
Susan says over the years, she’s watched Georgia give her time to several charities and organizations, helping her sow a charitable spirit.
“I was so impressed with her caring about this community, her being able to step up and when she needed to take charge… It just inspired me to want to do more for my community.”
Georgia says her dedication to helping is a part of her foundation.
“Service is the rent we pay for living and I agree with that. We all need to be apart of making this world a better place to live.”
And service is exactly what Georgia does best. Not only is she the Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House, she serves on a number of boards and also carves time out of her busy schedule to read to children.
“Regardless of how small you think your act might be, it really makes a difference to someone else… I’m always happy when I can help my friends and other people, because you know, when you’re giving to others, you’re the receiver.”
