Public Relations

One of the organizations the Xi Chi chapter likes to volunteer at is the Ronald McDonald house of Pittsburgh. What this organization does is provides shelter and food for families with sick children. They provide an environment and support to families in need during their treatment.

Our sisters have gone in to help cook and serve meals. They help prepare meals and also clean up at the end. They also went down to spend time with the children as well.

At the time, Kaylee Neil was our hours chair, but now our New Member Educator. She has grown close with the organization and loves being able to do work with them. She mentions how rewarding it is to give back to the community. She loves being able make hot meals for the families who she knows don't always have the time or money to do so.
