Smiles, Spaghetti are Just the First Course

Class serves up dinner, donation at Ronald McDonald House charity

In addition to serving a spaghetti meal to more than 60 guests one evening at the Ronald McDonald House, Globe University-Woodbury students also presented a check to help fund the nonprofit.

Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest (RMHC-UM) provides lodging and food for families who have a child with a life-threatening illness.

“The courage these patients have is so encouraging,” said student Katherine Hogenson. “I don’t know if I could go through what these children have experienced and put a smile on my face at the end of the day. These children have motivated me to keep volunteering for this awesome organization.”
The Global Citizenship class held an on-campus bake sale to raise money for RMHC-UM and advertise the organization’s need for donations and volunteers. The effort raised $95 for the Ronald McDonald House.

“This project was life-changing in ways I never thought possible,” said student Lisa Lucci. “The thing that stuck the most in my mind was all the hardships all these families and children are going through and how this establishment is helping them in their time of need.”
