IHC Scott employees, families, and friends from the Front Range South Area helped prepare a dinner for families at the Aurora Ronald McDonald House last month.
There were multiple varieties of meals prepared including tacos, chana masala (vegetarian), and chicken tikka masala to go with cookies and individual raspberry cakes for dessert.
The Aurora location can take up to 45 families a night. When IHC Scott participated, full meals were prepared for 60-70 individuals.
Additionally, personal hygiene kits (women’s and men’s) were purchased and given to the caregivers (parents, grandparents, etc.) who are staying at the house while their loved ones are in the hospital.
Goodie bags were also put together for the children in the hospital as well as the children staying with family members in the Ronald McDonald House. These goodie bags included small boxes of crayons with a coloring/activity book and a sensory/fidget toy.
These items were a huge hit both last year and this year. The children and caregivers loved the goodie bags and the hygiene kits were greatly appreciated. IHC Scott employees loved taking some time out of their busy schedules to help others in need.
IHC Scott is volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House for the second-consecutive year. In addition to June’s group of employees, other areas will help prepare meals in July, August, September, and October of this year.
The Ronald McDonald House provides hope, stability, and a place to call home for many individuals. When families have a seriously ill child and need to seek medical care far from their own homes, they can turn to Ronald McDonald Houses to find a home away from home at no cost for as long as treatment takes. The group seeks to give families with sick children what they need the most — each other. Its mission is to offer strength and hope each day, every day.
IHC Scott’s community involvement reflects our values and is part of our commitment to the public trust. Our purpose is to give back to the friends and neighbors who have treated us so well during the time we’ve spent in their communities. As we stay involved where we live and work, we are helping in Building a Better Community.
