Feeding families with hospitalized children
This past week, students from SkillsUSA Club at Erie 1 BOCES Potter Career & Technical Center provided dinner to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Buffalo. The Ronald McDonald House provides a safe, comfortable place where families with hospitalized children can stay.
 
The SkillsUSA Club prepared for their delicious meal by using the facilities available at Ronald McDonald House. They provided a taco bar with ground beef, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, nachos, cheese and salsa. Brownies and cookies were served for dessert.
 
“While this time can count toward students’ participation in government hours, our main goal was to help these families,” said Daniel Feeney, welding instructor.
 
Feeney and Joseph Ruddeforth, animal science instructor, coordinated the efforts of the six club members. Joining them on the trip was Principal Donna Mann and Feeney’s wife, Beth.
 
“This effort was dear to my heart,” Feeney continued. “When my son was seven days old he needed to be hospitalized and we relied on the Ronald McDonald House. This was a special experience to share with my students and co-workers.”   
 
Participating students included Taylor Fawley, Hamburg junior in Potter’s animal science program; Kaili Gallagher and Samantha Dzuilko, Frontier juniors in Potter’s health careers program; Macayla McCauley, JFK senior in Potter’s culinary program; Evan Van Osch, Maryvale senior in Potter’s welding program; and Shyann Caber, Frontier senior in Potter’s culinary program.
