Twin Cities NACE is giving BACK!
"We keep families close to the care and resources they need.Our mission. We, in partnership with our community, provide a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child’s serious illness."
About the Program
Join us for a night of giving back with Ronald McDonald House! We will be at the U of M East Bank Campus volunteering on November 6. Please note, due to the style of this event, we will start at 4:00PM! The volunteer work we will do will range from helping around the house to preparing dinner for the families who are currently staying in the house while their children receive treamtment. Please come dressed to volunteer (jeans, casual outfits are encouraged) as we will be on our feet for most of the evening. We will be welcomed by the staff, given our assingments, and then reconnect as a group and eat dinner together once the famillies have been fed. The staff will then share about the work and events done at the Ronald McDonald House, and there is a chance one of the families staying in the house will share their experience with us. This is an incredible look into a side of the hospitality industry that touches so many lives!
