Local high school boys from TVIA-SD2 prepare a special meal for Ronald McDonald House

Members of Teen Volunteers in Action, Chapter 2

On Jan. 11, high school boys from Teen Volunteers in Action, Chapter 2, volunteered to participate in a special meal prepared for children and families staying at Rady Children’s Hospital. The boys worked in the kitchen on a Mexican-themed dinner. Ronald McDonald House of San Diego is a “home away from home” for families with seriously ill children being treated at San Diego area hospitals. Since 1980, Ronald McDonald House of San Diego has provided more than 140,000 nights of lodging to 14,000 families in need. A new House opened in July 2009, with 47 bedrooms and a Family Care Center to help make life easier for families dealing with a sick child. The Family Care Center serves as a day resource for any family with a child in the hospital, providing necessities to make their lives easier as they go through the most difficult times of their lives.

The boys, some of whom have been active members in TVIA since 7th grade, enjoyed their volunteer time. “There is nothing better then giving back and helping others, especially when you can do it next to your friends and make some delicious food!” For more information, www.tvia.org.
