On Thursday, December 1, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., seven volunteers from the Highlands Ranch and Aurora offices manned the phones downtown for Colorado Ronald McDonald House, taking call-in pledge donations during the KOSI Light the House Radiothon.

This annual, all-day event raises money for both of the Ronald McDonald Houses in Colorado so that they can continue to support families in need. Rocky, the Denver Nuggets mascot, and Santa paid a visit to the kids too!

By the end of the Nelnet shift, $259,925 had been raised during the day with three more hours to go. Living up to our core value of giving back to the communities in which we live and work, Nelnet will be donating $5000 to the Ronald McDonald House!

Thank you to Brenda Sayasane, Jon Badding, Jo Bullinger, Tasha King, Cassandra Finley, Jason Klinger, and Rachel Saiz for volunteering!
