Service with the Ronald McDonald House

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - Dana Schwab (MS 2012 volunteer) and our new MS1 2013 volunteers (Kevin Vasquez, Jessyca Campos, Victora Shertel and Alyssa Cocchiara) from UMDNJ had the opportunity to make dinner for the Ronald MacDonald House families in Camden, NJ.  
This was a great way to serve locally while bringing the new volunteers together in preparation for their upcoming Ecuador trip.  Check out the wonderful thank you note from the RMH Operations Manager:
Dear Dana,
On this very cold afternoon, our hearts are filled with warm appreciation for you! Thank you for treating our kids and their families to a wonderful dinner this last weekend. You filled our house with the delicious scents of a homemade meal, helping our families feel like they were truly home.

We strive to be a place of comfort and care for our families and their sick children because we know that they need all the support and love they can get as they seek specialized medical care in our area. Thank you for being part of our team of loving helpers!
