When we’re not doing ComedySportz matches or team practices, sometimes we hang out and do cool stuff together. Tonight was cook night for CSz Boston teammates at the Ronald McDonald House in Boston!
The RMH can host up to 20 families, all who have young ones receiving cancer treatments in the nearby Children’s Hospital Boston. Nearly all of the resources in the house are donated.
There is always a need, and one simple thing that can have enormous impact is taking care of a meal for the families on any evening. You work with the organizer via email to decide on a date you’d like to bring your group, and tell them what you’ll be cooking. The day of, hop into the house’s kitchen with your friends (we had some 90’s pop playing during our session) and then families have a home cooked meal waiting for them when they come back from a long day in the hospital. It’s fun, you get to know your teammates better and help folks going through a tough experience with their loved ones.
