Volunteering At The O.C. Ronald McDonald House

I have to start making an effort to pay more attention to this blog for my personal photography. I feel so sad that I've abandoned it!

Anyway, I recently volunteered at the O.C. Ronald McDonald House with the Everything Under The Sun Is Charitable of OC (volunteering meetup group) and we made an Italian meals for the CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) patients and families.

The OC Ronald McDonald House allows CHOC patients and familes to have a place to live when they're unable to go home for various reasons. This house was created so families didn't have to sleep on the couch/floor in the hospital while their family member(s) get treatment at the hospital. There are 40 rooms, each room can hold up to four people, so the house can host up to 80 people at one time. Sometimes patients/families come from out of state and even from othe countries to stay here for their family member!
