Long Branch, NJ - The Brookdale women's soccer team prepared dinner for the Ronald McDonald House in Long Branch on Tuesday, November 13th, just one day after the team returned home from the NJCAA Division III national tournament in Rockford, IL.
The student-athletes made a delicious penne pasta meal, seasoned in their homemade garlic oil sauce with a side of freshly baked garlic bread and salad. The Jersey Blues also served warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
"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."
