A Meal From the Heart
February 26, 2019Categorized in:
This February, a group of ACS employees donated their time to The Ronald McDonald House of Madison, making a home cooked meal for families with sick children. Volunteers like these are key to the success of the Ronald McDonald House, who provides families a “home-away-from-home,” ensuring they have a place to stay and a warm supportive environment to focus on their child’s recovery.
The ACS team wasted no time getting to work and delegating tasks to ensure the families had a healthy and delicious meal. Head chef for the evening, and ACS President, Scott Hoselton expressed his appreciation for his team and their ability to step into any role and see the task through to completion. “It’s really great to work with these people every day in the field and the office but still be amazed by their big hearts. We had a great time!” said Hoselton.
When families arrive back at the House after a long day, there is always a meal waiting for them. Many local organizations, restaurants, individuals, and House volunteers prepare meals for families on a regular basis.
“I feel fortunate that my family and I have been blessed with our health, opportunities and advantages. Our struggles are next to none in comparison to other less fortunate people. Volunteering is a small way to give back to the community and to those going through difficult times. Besides, there’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.”
