Cooking up a storm at Ronald McDonald House Monash
07 Dec 2015
Employees have volunteered and cooked an Aussie Festive Feast for families currently staying at Ronald McDonald House Monash. The company has also donated $10,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia and New Zealand.
Asaleo Care, CEO, Peter Diplaris says, “Spending the festive season in hospital is tough on anyone especially for children. Everyone working at Ronald McDonald House does a fantastic job. I am delighted employees have pitched in and cooked a meal for the families. It is a small gesture and our way of showing we care. ”
Ronald McDonald Houses are a ‘home away from home’ for the families of seriously ill children being treated at a nearby hospital. “We are pleased that our support and annual donation helps to keep these important community facilities operating,” says Mr Diplaris.
Cherie Shaw, Community Development Manager, at Ronald McDonald House Monash says, “People often underestimate the relief of coming home from a day at the hospital to a home cooked meal, or the benefits of socialising with other families who are going through similar experiences. Through the assistance of companies like Asaleo Care we can make what is often a very tough time for families a little bit more manageable.”
