Google's sweetest service? A trip to trick out Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill

Employees from the Chapel Hill, Durham and Lenoir, North Carolina Google offices participated in the annual GoogleServe event, with this year's focus being a revamp of a space in the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill. After weeks of planning, the team decided to take on the House's video game room, which was in need of new technology. The volunteers donated thousands of dollars worth of TVs, gaming consoles and Google electronics, as well as new toys and bean bag chairs for the play rooms. After hours of cleaning, building and baking, the House was decked out and ready for families who need a clean, fun space to relax after long days at the hospital. For the RMH, which fundraises 93 percent of its yearly operating budget, this donation was important — and the day of service cemented a partnership between RMH Chapel Hill and the local Google offices that will continue into the future.

Column: Register to run for your local government

One of my favorite parts of this county is how involved its residents are in local government. They write letters, they speak up, they show up week after week and fight for what they believe. It’s inspiring, and it’s the only way Orange County will continue to become a more inclusive place.
