I only have a quick thought about the “Rethink the Krispy Kreme Hospital’s Name” letter to the editor [Nov. 11, Xpress] by Carmen Procida.
When my youngest sister had several surgeries at the Shriners Hospital in Kentucky, they put us up in a place called the Ronald McDonald House because the cost of hotels and traveling and treatments can be very expensive on families with children who are in need of medical services. None of my family are struggling with overweight issues due to this experience.
I personally find naming things after those who donate to be a reflection of the honor and thanks we have for the people who are not only able but willing to donate large sums of money. So I say, “Thank you, Krispy Kreme, and more power to you! I love your doughnuts and I happen to love exercise, too!”
