Quest Food Management Services has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago and Northwest Indiana. This partnership is very near and dear to Quest, especially after Quest's Cofounder, Sandra Kasprzak, lost her battle to cancer last year.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago and Northwest Indiana is an independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing a 'home away from home' while their child is being treated in the hospital. Each night, they keep 153 families close to the care and resources they need because of the comfort, compassion, and community at five area Ronald McDonald Houses® and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
Quest is thrilled to be volunteering at the five RMHC homes to provide scratch-made meals to the families staying at the homes. Quest recently rolled out a payroll donation deduction program for all Quest employees to participate in. Quest is committed to matching a portion of the donations. These donations will allow families to stay close to their child in the hospital, support their child's health and well-being, and save the families over $10 million in hotel and food costs each year.
"Quest chose RMHC as our new charitable partner because they serve who we serve (kids and families), because they offer opportunities for us to get involved in many ways due to their wide geographic presence, and because of their great reputation as an organization that accomplishes a lot with the resources they have."- President, Nicholas Saccaro.
