Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego recently welcomed several new board of trustees members to guide the organization on its mission to provide supportive services, including food and lodging, to families with a critically ill or injured child being treated at a local hospital.

“The Ronald McDonald House depends on hundreds of volunteers to serve thousands of meals each week and keep the 47-bedroom facility running smoothly, and it relies on a handful of dedicated individuals to provide guidance as members of the board of trustees,” said Doug Dawson, chair of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego board of trustees. “Our board has recently expanded and we’re delighted to have visionary philanthropists and unstoppable business minds join the team.”

Among the new trustees is Del Mar’s Nick Cole, an executive vice president in the Corporate Banking group at Wells Fargo, where he is responsible for the Restaurant and Casino Gaming Finance divisions.

With 17 years in corporate and investment banking, Cole doesn’t just bring business knowledge to the charity, but a dedication to its cause. Cole has a history of volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House and has served meals to guests in the Family Care Center, helping to alleviate some of the day-to-day stress that comes with having a seriously ill or injured child in the hospital.

“Each member of our board of trustees dedicates their time, talent and resources to our House, enabling us to focus on how we may best serve the families who need us,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “This group of individuals has a range of knowledge and experience to bring to the table and we look forward to learning from them for years to come.”
