For November, the Jennie Day meal consisted of hearty lasagna, Italian meatballs and sauce, with garlic knots, salad, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert – not your typical November Thanksgiving fare! We’d like to thank the White Plains Bus Company for their very generous sponsorship of the November meal. The November meal also marked a milestone: three years of providing monthly meals to the families at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley, and to the staff and families in the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital Oncology and PICU wards. Thirty-six meals, mostly served on Jennie’s anniversary of the 15th of each month. We are thankful to be able to do this work in Jennie’s memory, and express our gratitude to you, our donors, for making it possible.
This month the Foundation also sponsored 20-day stays at both the Greater Hudson Valley and Philadelphia Ronald McDonald Houses. These grants offset the modest guest fee charged by the Houses for those families who cannot afford to pay.
Thank you once again for your support. We wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!
