Volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House
Palos Pediatric Dentistry at the Ronald McDonald House
Last month, our staff volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House at Christ Hospital. While we originally signed up to spend some time giving back to the community, we were shocked at how much we got out of the experience ourselves. The Ronald McDonald House Charity provides housing for families with children who are admitted to the hospital for an extended period of time. We really enjoyed spending time with each other, cooking Beatriz's "family secret" recipes. Our taco bar was delicious! Of course we are biased but it was really, really good. And it was exciting to provide a home-cooked meal for all of the families staying at the house. Making their day a little bit brighter meant a lot to us, and we hope they enjoyed it too! This would be a great volunteer opportunity for businesses, but also for families or friends. We will certainly be back! FYI there is a several month long waitlist to volunteer, so if you're interested be sure to plan ahead!
