Chapter Announcements

  • Ronald McDonald House Volunteering!

    Another great event at RMD!

    This past Wednesday, March 17th, the CFMA Baltimore Chapter Board members had the opportunity to prepare breakfast for individuals staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Baltimore while their children undergo treatment at various hospitals in the area.  The temporary residents were able to enjoy a great breakfast and shared their compliments including:

    ·         “These sausages are great! No one ever browns sausage like I do, except for here!”

    ·         “The best part of this breakfast is the Mickey waffles, well everything is great, but you can’t beat waffles that looks like Mickey”

    ·         “My son was praying to god yesterday there would be waffles, but there weren’t. I’m taking one of these to go and give it to him”

     The families were grateful for the breakfast provided and the CFMA was fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend some time giving back to the community!
