The MSU Athletic Training Student Organization (ATSA) volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Children’s Hospital the past two Saturday mornings. This Ronald McDonald House is Springfield’s second Ronald McDonald House and serves families of children who are hospitalized. The purpose of these facilities is to bring comforts of home to families of hospitalized patients. This includes overnight accommodations in addition to a place to relax, catch up on email, have a bite to eat, do laundry, or take a nap.
The past two Saturdays, ATSA has cooked and served breakfast to the residents of the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Children’s Hospital. Those students that participated in this volunteer event described the experience as humbling and a great opportunity. Great work, ATSA, for supporting those in need!
