Swap your Blue Devil horns for a chef's hat and join Duke Colorado for an opportunity to prepare and serve a meal from scratch to families at the Ronald McDonald House Charities - Denver and Aurora locations.  

In many communities and cultures, it is traditional for friends and neighbors to prepare meals for their loved ones who are caring for a sick family member. It is an act of kindness that translates feelings of concern into a tangible expression of human compassion. When families return to the Ronald McDonald House after a long day at the hospital it is nice to have a hot, delicious home-cooked meal prepared for them, which is where YOU come in. 

There are two opportunities to volunteer:

Dinner from 4:00PM-7:30PM on Friday, June 14th at the RMHC-Denver - 10 spots available
Brunch from 8:00AM-11:30AM on Saturday, June 15th at the RMHC-Aurora - 10 spots available
      *These times include both set-up/prep and clean-up. 

Both sessions are group volunteer opportunities meaning they will consist of 5-10 individuals each. Meal selection/menu will be pre-arranged and Duke will cover the cost of all ingredients.

A hot meal can do wonders for families who spend long days caring for their seriously ill children. Signing-up to help prepare a meal is a great way to help nourish the bodies and souls of RMHC families while also giving back to your local community surrounded by fellow Dukies.
