YMF Ronald McDonald Service Event

OC Branch Younger Members Volunteer at OC Ronald McDonald House

By Michelle Ochoa, Orange County Branch YMF Co-Community Service Chair

On Saturday July, 16th members and friends of Orange County Branch Younger Member Forum prepared a meal for families staying at the Orange County Ronald McDonald House through the meal program,”Feasts from the Heart.”  The Orange County Ronald McDonald House provides a comforting "home away from home" for families with seriously ill children receiving treatment in Orange County hospitals. The OC-YMF volunteers prepared a lunch meal for the families to enjoy while in between hospital visits which was received by many thanks and appreciation from the families.  The lunch crew was lead by Gidti Ludesirishoti and the menu consisted of delicious Thai dishes such as Pad See Ew, Massaman Curry, Thai BBQ chicken, vegetable curry and Yam Nua Salad.  The volunteers included Gidti Ludesirishoti, Philip Wang, Mollie Banh, Sheila Moredo, Crystal Nguyen, Misty Vasquez, Steph Wang, Toviah Hirshberg and Noreen Furubayashi.
