UWM Student-Athlete Advisory Council Gets Cooking At Ronald McDonald House
March 6, 2012
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Student-Athlete Advisory Council took time to cook dinner at Milwaukee's Ronald McDonald House Monday night.
The volunteer program invites groups to dedicate their time and resources toward providing a meal for the families of children currently at Children's Hospital.
"This was a great evening and something well worth the time and effort," UWM Assistant Athletic Director Deidre Merritt said. "A lot of planning and a lot of cooking went into it, but it was very rewarding and goes to show just how dedicated our student-athletes are in giving back to the community."
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin, Inc. is dedicated to easing the burden of families whose lives have been disrupted as a result of their child's illness or injury. Groups that agree to provide a meal cook a family dinner for approximately 40-45 people. The Ronald McDonald House provides rooms for up to 38 families.
