Ronald McDonald House Partners with Volunteer New York!

Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley (RMHGHV) recently forged a partnership with Volunteer New York! to regularly engage corporate volunteers for their Day of Service volunteer program, Chef for a Day. The program which was launched last Fall calls for local chefs to bring their culinary talents to the newly renovated kitchen in the House and lead cooking demonstrations. Chef for a Day, connects local chefs with RMHGHV volunteers who commit to a day of service and create, prepare and serve brunch, dessert and dinner to the families that stay at the House.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the team at RMHGHV to share our knowledge and insight about volunteering in the Westchester community to potential corporate volunteer groups,” said Katie Pfeifer, Senior Director of Programs for Volunteer New York!. “Through this partnership, we can bring to the table our vast knowledge of corporate engagement while aligning with the needs and culture of the Ronald McDonald House.”

Based in Tarrytown, Volunteer New York! inspires, mobilizes and equips individuals, groups and organizations to take positive action to address pressing challenges, support nonprofits and strengthen the quality of life in the community. Through this partnership, the Corporate Relations Team at Volunteer New York! will serve as a liaison between interested volunteer groups and RMHGHV while providing top notch volunteer engagement for companies participating in this program.

“Partnering with Volunteer New York! is just one more step toward our continued goal of cultivating corporate volunteerism here at our House through our Day of Service programs,” said Christina Riley, Executive Director RMHGHV. “Our Chef for a Day program will continue to flourish through this partnership and we are looking forward to working with the dedicated leadership team at Volunteer New York! to continue to create hope, help, and comfort through delicious meals for our families.”
