Last night, May 9, members of Saints Nicholas and Dimitrios church of East Vancouver, went to Ronald McDonald House to offer their help and a hearty Greek dinner to the families there.
Proceeds from all who had purchased Easter candles (lambades) this year, went towards this dinner.
Best Neighbours Restaurant and Pizza house donated pizzas, and Zorba’s Foods donated the all the pita bread for this event.
For over thirty years, Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, has been providing accommodation for children who are seriously ill and their families, when they need to travel to Vancouver for major treatment.
Since 1983, families at their 13 bedroom home in Shaughnessy in Vancouver, have been welcomed however, the need for their services was much greater than this.
Therefore, in 2013, construction on a new 73 bedroom home which is conveniently located on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital, began.
