What a difference the pandemic made! Previously when volunteering at Ronald McDonald House, employees of Jaburg Wilk prepared dinner, decorated the dining room and were able to meet the residents when they served them dinner. When we volunteered in 2021, it was contactless! We were limited to four volunteers who made delicious pot pies, corn, salad, dinner rolls and of course, a yummy dessert. They were placed in to-go containers for the guests and residents of Ronald McDonald House to pick up when they were ready for dinner. Just a new and different way of giving back.
