WEB EXCLUSIVE The Heart and Hands club held a bake sale in the Main Hall today during lunch to raise money to support of the Ronald McDonald House.

“We raise money for families with children in the hospital,” club head Erika Wong said. “We fundraise through bake sales to buy ingredients and with those ingredients, we make dinners at the hospital.”

Preparing and serving meals at the residence gives the members of the club to interact with the guests, according to senior Kate Thomis.

“You actually eat with the guests when you’re there,” Thomis said. “[Last time] there was a man there from Europe for his daughter’s cancer treatment and it was amazing to connect with someone so positive.”

The bake sales offered a range of sweet treats with cookies, brownies and donuts. The sale usually makes around $80, which is enough to feed about 30 people, according to Wong.

“I like bake sales because they are easy to put together,” Wong said. “They’re a great way to bring the community together through food.”

The club aims to visit the house twice a year, allowing them to fundraise and then bring ingredients to the on-site kitchen.

“I think Heart and Hands is doing a really important thing for the Ronald McDonald house,” Thomis said. “It doesn’t take that much time and we can cook a meal that can really make a difference.”
