On Saturday, September 19, CID’s GSF Foundation volunteers prepared a wonderful McDonald’s breakfast for the families staying at the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House. This was the biggest breakfast they can remember cooking, as the house was in full capacity with all the rooms being occupied. All 21 rooms were overflowing in the house, and as Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House doesn’t turn anyone down, 12 hotel rooms were booked and another off-site house rooming three families were all occupied.

A great addition to the breakfast was the fresh and delicious honey dew melon and cantaloupe brought by the volunteers. Hernan Sias, volunteer associate, took the time to deliver the sausage, liquid eggs, hotcakes and cinnamon melts. Also added to the breakfast was toast, hash browns and tortillas filled with scrambled eggs and cut-up sausage. The food was ready by nine in the morning and two hours later, GSF volunteers were barely putting things away.  They began putting things away and shortly had to pull everything out again to serve the amounts of people that showed up for the delicious food and hospitable service.  “The families very much appreciated the wonderful breakfast and personally thanked the volunteers,” says Griselda Hernandez, Foundation communications chair. “Again, thank you, volunteers for making a difference and living the GSF Values!”
