Throughout the months of November and December, three teams compromised of employees from all of our Wilbert’s locations worked together to provide meals to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester provides a home-away-from-home to families while their children receive the medical care they need at the affiliated hospital. They are a non-profit organization whose mission is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. They have helped families save over $504 million in hotel and meal expenses.
Our staff chose a meal to prepare, cooked it in the facility’s kitchen, then packaged it to be stored for the families living on-site. While we were honored to take part in this initiative, it was also a great team-building activity, as the groups were made up of several people from each facility who don’t always get to collaborate.
