Wests’ employees volunteered to support families with seriously ill children who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW by baking up some goodies to bring a little joy their day.
Throughout the year, Wests’ volunteers took to the kitchen to bake up a storm for families who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW. This small gesture to create a meal helps to take a little bit of pressure on the daily routines to provide a little bit of relief for each family. Each visit directly impacts the health and wellbeing of children and their families.
Ronald McDonald Houses provide a homely and inviting place to stay for parents, guardians, carers and their siblings while their child is undergoing treatment in Northern NSW . The 18 houses provide essential care and support to those who have to travel far from home to receive medial care, only steps away from the hospital.
See how Ronald McDonald House Charities provide vital programs for families and how you can support their work.
