Students volunteer at Ronald McDonald House


Natalie Freeman, James Rodell and Kynlee Driskill work on salads at the Ronald McDonald House kitchen. The students helped prepare and serve lunch for the residents.

Helping out in the Ronald McDonald House was one way for several students to put in some volunteer hours. The students worked in the kitchen and helped to prepare and serve meals to the residents.

“It felt really good knowing that I was able to help others,” sophomore Kynlee Driskill said. “I don’t think it could have gone better.”

The Ronald McDonald House has been around since 1974 helping parents who can’t afford driving back and forth with children in the hospital with long-term illnesses. They provide a place to stay as well as meals and snacks for the residents.

“The students did great,” teacher Wendy Neyland, who took the students to volunteer for the day, said. “They always seem to come together so well. They were a great representation of Buffalo.”
