"Meals from the Heart" Make Life Easier for Families
There are lots of volunteer opportunities at Ronald McDonald House, including making a meal, to support and cheer families staying in Pittsburgh for medical treatment.
We hope you're finding some great opportunities to volunteer your time during this holiday season. To help, we're suggesting our favorites in Sparkt's 25 Days of Volunteering.
Volunteering with friends or co-workers can often be the most fun. And today's volunteer opportunity will leave you feeling good, knowing that what you're doing is making life easier for out of town families with sick children in Pittsburgh hospitals.
Ronald McDonald House is where a lot of these families stay while they're in the city. They have something they call "Meals from the Heart," where volunteers prepare meals for those families so they can concentrate on more important things.

They have a complete "how to" on their website , along with a place to sign up for a date and meal. You'll also find all the rules for meal prep, along with suggestions for dishes.
If cooking isn't your thing, how about planning a fun activity like a craft project or movie night for the families at Ronald McDonald House through their Family Social Hour, or create welcome bags or door decorations for the families' rooms.
