Sixteen Ronald McDonald House families received a lunch featuring a taco bar consisting of both beef and chicken tacos with all of the fixings on June 13th in Oak Lawn. The desserts of baked chocolate chip and sugar cookies were washed down with water, iced tea, and lemonade.
The volunteer-prepared meal was part of Ronald McDonald House’s “Meals from the Heart” program. Staff members of Lewis University’s School for Professional and Continuing Education volunteered for that particular day.
Volunteers plan, provide, prepare, serve, and clean up a meal for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House across the street from Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn. It allows the families to focus on caring for their sick children receiving care in the hospital. Ronald McDonald House is 100-percent dependent upon donations and does not require the families to pay for room and board.
Participating in the program was in an effort to both bond as a team and uphold Lewis University’s spirit of association present in the mission.
The SPCE volunteers included Kari Orseske, Dr. Anne Figus, Maggi Pfrommer, Joanna Baumann, Sarah Wiegman, Fabiana Tkac and Dr. Anne Rapp.
