At PaySimple we are always looking for ways to get involved in the community, so earlier this month, we got a group together to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House in Denver.
If you’re not already familiar with the organization, the Ronald McDonald House is a wonderful charity that provides housing for families with children in the hospital. It allows families, who might not otherwise be able to afford it, to be close to their children – so they can provide support and love during the healing process. No family is ever turned away. The Ronald McDonald House serves as a home for 3.7 million families around the world each year. And during their stay, families are offered a number of amenities including home-cooked meals.
As such, we decided the best way for us to help out was to cook for the families at the Denver RMH. On the menu was: Sloppy Joes, chips, coleslaw, Rice Krispies Treats, and drinks. And while some of us don’t have the best cooking skills, all of the families seemed to enjoy our home-cooked meal.
It was a wonderful experience being able to put a smile on the faces of families that are going through a tough time. We encourage all small businesses and individuals to do what you can to volunteer and give back to the community.
