Representatives from the Westmead Redevelopment project team, including members of project management team PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and the Western Sydney Local Health District recently visited Ronald McDonald House Westmead to help prepare a feast for its hungry residents.
The team volunteered their time on the evening of Friday, 1 June to prepare meals for those staying at Ronald McDonald House Westmead, as part of its Meals from the Heart program. The house provides accommodation for families with children undergoing extended treatment at The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
The Westmead Redevelopment contribution was organised by PwC project manager Ronald Tong as part of the team's commitment to help others. The menu for the evening included pizzas, pasta, garlic bread and salad with tiramasu for dessert.
"The Meals from the Heart program was a great oppurtunity for the project team to get involved and help make a difference for families staying at the house, Ronald said.
"Most of the time preparing a meal is often the last thing on people's minds when coming home from the stresses of day-to-day life, so it was fantastic to be able to help prepare a meal for the families at the house to enjoy," Ronald said.
The event represents part of the social impact work that PwC actively commit to as an organisation.
This includes supporting education, Indigenous communities, mental health and homelessness initiatives, as well as assisting in up-skilling communities.
