The Ronald McDonald House at Front & Erie Streets
We will be preparing 35-40 meals for the families of very sick children in Philadelphia - our co-chairs Caren Schiffman and Jane Jacobs will planning and shopping for the meal.|
The Meal Program is one of many services provided by the Ronald McDonald Houses to support families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. The dinner not only provides the families with a nutritious meal that might otherwise be skipped, it also creates an opportunity for families to interact with one another, share their stories, and learn from people who are in similar situations.
Limit of 10 people can participate. All participants must be in good health.
If you are interested in volunteering - please rsvp to Caren Schiffman ([email protected]) to obtain your registration forms.
