When a child is sick in the hospital, the last thing their family should worry about is providing meals for the rest of the family. That’s why PSEG Long Island employee volunteers participate in the Meals from the Heart program at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMHLI) in New Hyde Park throughout the year.
Recently, PSEG Long Island’s Women’s Network employee business resource group converged at the guest house supplied with eggs, cheese, fruits and veggies, breads and muffins and other breakfast favorites to prepare brunch for 50 residents.
Eleven employee volunteers prepared a delicious brunch for families staying at the House. They whipped up French toast, egg and cheese soufflé, muffins, fresh fruit and a tossed garden salad.
“The opportunity to prepare and serve a meal to someone who needs relief has been such a meaningful, personal experience,” said PSEG Long Island Women’s Network President Tricia Faltings, first-time RMHLI volunteer. “These families shouldn’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from. They have more challenging issues to deal with.”
PSEG Long Island is committed to giving back to the people and communities it serves by actively supporting hundreds of local charity events each year through the company’s Community Partnership Program. Last year, PSEG Long Island employees logged 26,000 service hours, volunteering at 1,145 fundraising and community events to support more than 400 organizations.
