SRC Prepares Meals for local Ronald McDonald House of the Ozarks
The SRC Community Relations Committee supports our local Ronald McDonald House of the Ozarks by aiding in the mission to provide a “home away from home”. As a group, they volunteer to provide meals for families quarterly.
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children in the Ozarks. Their first priority is to provide a "home away from home" for families when their seriously-ill or injured child is in a hospital far from home. Since 1988 their cornerstone project, the Ronald McDonald House®, has embraced more than 10,000 families during a time of unspeakable hardship.
About the Family Meals Program
Many of the parents and other family members at the Ronald McDonald House do not feel they can take the time to prepare adequate meals because it is additional time that they will be away from their sick child or infant. This being one of the most stressful situations they will ever endure makes it even more important to eat at least one good meal a day. Our “Family Dinner Program” allows families to relax and enjoy an evening meal at the Ronald McDonald House every night of the week, thanks to the generosity of many groups, businesses and individuals. These meals can be prepared at the House or brought in ready to eat. They can have a casual feel or the format of a sit-down dinner. It’s all up to the person or group involved in planning and preparing the meal. Would you be interested in adopting a Family Dinner Night at the Ronald McDonald House? This project not only allows you to do something outstanding to help others in need, but also gives you and your friends, family or fellow employees a fun and rewarding volunteer experience.
