#KBGivings: Meal Prep Saturday for Ronald McDonald House Charities
By Alana Hanly, Security Consultant at Kenton Brothers
Our Kenton Brothers family runs and operates on a dynamic series of schedules as we install, maintain and consult our customers on the ever changing needs to keep their people, properties and possession safe. Recently we took a moment to pause, deliberate as a team, and thanks to the efforts of our Kenton Brothers Kulture Club, organize a team give back Saturday.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
Giving back to our customers is important, especially those who are constantly supporting our local community. This is why it made perfect sense to give some time and effort to our partner, Ronald McDonald House Charities. This organization is always looking for an extra volunteer or two to help with their many initiatives. We decided that providing meals to one of their family areas was the best choice.
If you aren’t aware, Ronald McDonald House Charities has family rooms inside both of the Children’s Mercy Hospitals in the KC Metro. These family rooms are for the parents and siblings of patients to rest and grab a bite to eat while their children receive care. We went to one of these locations to make quick lunchboxes for anyone that visited. The room itself has an entire kitchen that can be used to prep food. Thanks, to the generous donations of our employees and local grocery chain, our group of five adults and three kids were able to put together about 50 lunchboxes in record time!
It was a fun way to spend a Saturday morning. One of our participants affectionately described it as, “Soul Food.”
If you’re ever looking for a way to volunteer for an organization doing a lot of good, reaching out to Ronald McDonald House Charities is a great first step. We’re so lucky to be partners with an organization like Ronald McDonald House Charities and look forward to serving them and our community again soon!
