I am going to assist a community center - the Ronald McDonald house in Kansas City, Missouri. This house is connected with Children's Mercy Hospital. I am President of my county 4-H club, and the leader of my county 4-H foods group. With my foods group, and other foods groups from my county, I will be traveling to the Ronald McDonald House to prepare a meal for the families staying there. The families staying at the Ronald McDonald House have very sick children staying in Children's Mercy Hospital. These sick children are often patients in the hospital for weeks. These families need help in any way possible, and that is why I feel that my project is very beneficial to the community.
My group will provide the food for the meal. We will cook the food, and we will serve the food. We are also planning on leaving some snacks at the Ronald McDonald House after we leave for the families to snack on. Usually, the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House are responsible for making their own meals. If I can make a difference for just a few families on just one day, I feel I will have accomplished something worthwhile. Maybe other 4H clubs will follow suit and we couold make an annual event out of it.
