Peirce snapshot: Ambassadors Club at the Ronald McDonald House

On Sunday, Nov. 7, student members of the Peirce College Ambassadors Club rolled up their sleeves and tied on their aprons to provide breakfast for families at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH). The group was on hand bright and early to volunteer as part of the Guest Chef Program at the Front and Erie House, which is located next to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. The house offers a home-like environment for 17 families a night, providing the comforts of home and support from PRMH staff and volunteers.

Alyson Rodgers, Peirce Enrollment Representative and co-advisor for the Ambassadors Club, worked closely with our student ambassadors to organize this community service opportunity. For those of you who might not be familiar with the group, the Ambassadors Club allows students to share their Peirce pride and spread the word about the College in our community and with prospective students. Volunteering in the Philadelphia community is just one of many ways that the ambassadors share their excitement about Peirce and serve as College representatives.
