GENERAL VANIER STUDENTS CONTINUE TO BRING HOLIDAY CHEER TO RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

MONTREAL, DECEMBER 7, 2015 – Whatever the weather might be outside, there will be plenty of smiles, cheer and warmth inside the Ronald McDonald House (5800 Hudson) in Cote des Neiges on December 10 (10 am to 1 pm) as students from General Vanier will once again participate in the Prepare-A-Meal program.

For the third straight year, students in Grades 4 to 6 as well as parent volunteers will continue the holiday tradition of preparing a meal for the children and families. When students are not hard at work cooking and serving the hearty meal of pasta, salad and a variety of desserts, they will engage in a variety of activities with the children, such as cookie decorating and snowflake making.

Students will also be donating brand-new or slightly used toys and all proceeds from a Dress Down Day that was held in November.

“We are so excited that we will be continuing this holiday tradition this year,” said General Vanier parent volunteer Lida Rinaldi. “On behalf of all PPO members, we wish to extend our fondest holiday wishes to everyone, most especially our friends at the Ronald McDonald House, we hope that our children will be able to bring some holiday cheer into your lives.”

In order to continuously make the event a success, General Vanier has once again partnered with Aramark Catering, Lafrenaie Bakery, Charcuterie Noel, LT Traiteur and Boulangerie Del Sole in order to provide the healthy and delicious meal.
