With spring underway, Seton employees were on a mission to spread some warmth to the Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut.
The Ronald McDonald House acts as a haven for the families of sick children who are in need of long-term inpatient or outpatient hospital treatment. The families residing in the New Haven Ronald McDonald House have had their lives disrupted and changed by childhood illness and often are spending the majority of their time in and out of the local hospital.
Seton employees wanted to ensure that when the families come home from a long day at the hospital, they have a hot meal ready and waiting for them. The Shoreline Café, a local landmark restaurant, was kind enough to donate a catered dinner to the Ronald McDonald House. Several Seton employees even baked and decorated cupcakes, filling the house with the familiar smells of home cooking.
Seton also worked with a local gardening store to get an assortment of spring blooms for the house. The gated property where the Ronald McDonald House sits was decorated from front to back with planters bursting with flowers.
Seton employees filled the yard with the feeling of spring and left the Ronald McDonald House a brighter and more welcoming place.
