Quick meals are in high demand at The Ronald McDonald House located inside the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at Vidant Medical Center (near the pediatric units).
When a child is sick and receiving medical attention, the last thing families need is the added stress of worrying about how or where to grab something quick and nutritious to eat without having to leave the building where their child is being treated. Fortunately, the Ronald McDonald House provides a 2,500 sq.ft. common area with kitchen, laundry, and shower facilities, a playroom and other home-like amenities.
But, keeping the pantry full is an ongoing challenge.
During our October meeting, the Service League of Greenville held a last minute “Quick Meal Drive” to help the Ronald McDonald House restock their quick meals pantry. We are pleased to say, our members exceeded expectations:
Helping to unload the Service League of Greenville’s quick meal donations are RMH Eastern NC’s Director of Development, Hanna Caton, and Executive Director, Meghan King Woolard.
A huge thank you to all the SLG members who participated and gave so generously!
