EL CENTRO — When Jorge Pablo Garcia’s sister asked if she could see his and his wife’s newborn baby, he replied without hesitation, replied, “Sure, come over to the house.”

However, by that, Garcia didn’t mean his home in Imperial. He was talking about the Ronald McDonald House across the street from Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where his son, Sam, was recovering from an intensive surgery.
