Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. The Ronald McDonald House Charities helps address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care. So how did Globe University-Madison West help contribute to families and children in need? By cooking a dinner for 25 people staying at the local Ronald McDonald House.

At 6 p.m. sharp, the cooking of spaghetti and garlic bread began and the salad was set out. Brennan Porter, administrative assistant, said, “we braved the winter storm and our Globe team tested out our cooking skills by providing a hearty and well-balanced meal for the Ronald McDonald House families.” It was a simple way to show our “We Care” mission to the community to families in need.

“I enjoyed talking to the family members that were staying at the Ronald McDonald House. It was great to meet the visitors and hear their stories. They appreciate the meals provided to them through community volunteers,” Rita Cordova, medical assistant program chair, said.
