On August 7, members of the FCS Young Members Circle (YMC) visited the Ronald McDonald House New York to help serve dinner and engage the community of families that were staying in the house that week.
Located on East 73rd Street in Manhattan and near 8 major hospital systems, Ronald McDonald House New York welcomes children and families from across the world and can accommodate 95 families including 6 post-transplant suites.
The House also offers families additional support through wellness programs, tutors, music, art, transportation, activities for siblings, holiday and birthday parties, and camaraderie.
Earlier this year The FCS YMC selected the Ronald McDonald House New York as the beneficiary of their volunteer activities. Since its founding in 1978, Ronald McDonald House New York has provided temporary lodging and care for more than 35,000 families while their child battles cancer.
The FCS YMC will be hosting additional volunteer events at the Ronald McDonald House in the future. If you are interested in participating in the next volunteer event, please contact [email protected].
