Our Heartwarming Experience at Ronald McDonald House Charities
Recently, our team had the opportunity to contribute to the wonderful work of the Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand. Through a little baking, we not only added a little sweetness to the residents’ lives but also enjoyed a team activity outside of our normal work day.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities assists families facing the challenge of supporting a sick child. Providing a home away from home, the organization offers a comfortable and supportive environment for families to stay close to their hospitalized children. Alongside lodging, one of the services they provide is ensuring that these families have access to meals during their stay.
The House in Christchurch has full kitchen facilities so we didn’t need to take any cooking items with us, just the ingredients. Our team baked a variety of delicious treats like cheesecake, banana bread, muffins, gluten free friands, chocolate brownie, apple pie and savory scones. It was heartwarming to see smiles on the faces of the families as they enjoyed our treats and the Ronald McDonald team freeze any left over baking for another day.
Our time at the Ronald McDonald House shed light on the need for increased support in providing meals and baked goods to families staying at RMHC. We encourage anyone seeking a meaningful way to give back to their community to consider contributing to Ronald McDonald House Charities New Zealand. Whether through baking, volunteering, or providing financial support, every effort can make a difference to families facing challenging times.
