Monday afternoon, members of the Youth United Way Leadership Program (YUW) delivered over 200 boxes of macaroni & cheese to the Ronald McDonald House to help feed families while they are living in the residential facility.
Not only did the students deliver the boxes, they hand-stocked the food pantry themselves. They also learned more about the work of the organization when they spoke with a family staying at the residential facility.
The teens were given a tour by Caron Byrd, Director of Ronald McDonald House.
YUW collected over 410 boxes of macaroni and cheese during its kick-off service event of the school year, “Everybody Say Cheese” (see an earlier article here). The remainder of the boxes will be donated to the FedEx House food pantry for families staying in that facility.
