A Meaningful Impact at Ronald McDonald House
Easts Group and Sydney Roosters Make a Meaningful Impact at Ronald McDonald House
On Wednesday, 15 November, Easts Group and Sydney Roosters staff showcased their commitment to community service by participating in a heartwarming ‘Home for Dinner’ event at Ronald McDonald House in Randwick.
The ‘Home for Dinner’ initiative provided an opportunity for Easts Group and Sydney Roosters staff to not only engage in a rewarding team-building activity, but also make a meaningful difference in the lives of the families currently staying at Ronald McDonald House. Staff members had the privilege of personally cooking and serving dinner for the families, creating an intimate and supportive atmosphere within the facility.
Fruit Ezy and Vic’s Meats generously supported the ‘Home for Dinner’ initiative by kindly donating a bountiful assortment of fresh fruits, vegetables, and quality meats for the evening’s meal.
This event is part of a broader collaboration between Easts Group and Ronald McDonald House, spanning the past year, to support families residing at Ronald McDonald House. Throughout the year, the partnership has flourished with various initiatives aimed at enriching the lives of families facing challenging circumstances.
Among the initiatives undertaken, Easts Group and Sydney Roosters have provided numerous opportunities for families to attend Roosters training sessions and game days. Notably, multiple families have had the unique opportunity for their children to participate in the ball kid experience at Roosters home games at Allianz Stadium where they were invited to watch the team warm up on-field.
The collaboration also extended to community events such as the Walk Me Home initiative and Charity Race Day. Last year, Easts Group CEO Joe Kelly also took part in the CEO Walk in My Shoes initiative.
The Easts Group and Sydney Roosters have been generous contributors to Ronald McDonald House through initiatives like “Gift a Night”.
Players from the Sydney Roosters, including the newest NRLW Player Brydie Parker, have made regular visits to the house throughout the year. Brydie Parker has even taken on the role of an ambassador for the house, joining NRL ambassador Nat Butcher, further solidifying the commitment of the Sydney Roosters to make a positive impact in the community.
In addition to the recent ‘Home for Dinner’ event, this marks the second time this year that Easts Group and Sydney Roosters have participated in such experiences, reinforcing their dedication to fostering a sense of community and support for those in need.
