LIVE UNITED Story
‘Building’ a Better Future
To help serve others, the Orefield Middle School Builders Club traveled to two Philadelphia Ronald McDonald Houses, the Chestnut House & Erie House. These houses provide lodging for the families of sick children getting treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and St. Christopher’s Children’s Hospital. With TeenWorks funding, the club was able to prepare and serve a Mexican Fiesta Dinner to 200 people staying at the houses, as well as provide a craft for the children in the houses.
“We Builders are proud to help these families with a cooked meal and some warm hospitality. This fabulous trip could not be possible without the help of TeenWorks! Thank you for helping us help others!”
