Giving Back - Orlando Supports Local Ronald McDonald House

Giving back helps us learn and grow. See what our Orlando Campus cooked up for their local Ronald McDonald House.

Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life.  It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient.  It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.” – Dorothy Height

Giving back to the community is not a special event, but rather a part of who we are here at Herzing University.

Last month, the Caring and Community Committee from Herzing’s Orlando Campus volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida (RMHCCF). This amazing organization provides a home away from home for families receiving medical care in the local area.

We were inspired by the fact that 60% of this charity’s recipients are central Florida residents. We share their sense of responsibility to be an active, rather than reactive, member of this great community!

The Caring & Community Committee, made up of faculty and staff, purchased groceries and prepared a delicious home-cooked meal consisting of baked ziti, salad and breadsticks. It was an amazing experience to see families with such strength of character in the face of serious illnesses.

At Herzing University, community service isn’t just part of who we are, it’s how we learn and grow. So, we encourage you to find a cause that you believe in and give back.
