Lincroft, NJ - The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) traveled to the Ronald McDonald House in Long Branch this past Friday and prepared a home cooked meal for the families.
The club toured around the house and learned about the history of the Ronald McDonald Foundation before preparing a big house salad, fusilli pasta with spinach and asiago cheese and baked chocolate chip cookies.
"At The Ronald McDonald House, we understand how a family is impacted when a child becomes seriously ill – especially when treatment is far from home.
Our goal is to provide a true "home away from home" for families of seriously ill children receiving care at medical facilities near our locations in Long Branch and New Brunswick. We also offer Family Rooms and a Hospitality Suite in the pediatric units of four hospitals in Monmouth and Middlesex County.
We offer a welcoming, supportive environment for families during a time of uncertainty and stress. Family members can stay together in a comfortable home with private rooms and many amenities, helping them to remain strong throughout the course of their child's treatment."
