BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The UAB women's basketball team headed to the Ronald McDonald House Thursday night to spend time helping out those in need. It was a great opportunity for the Blazers to give back to the community before they take a short break from classes for the month of May.
The team offered a helping hand and participated in serving meals to the children and families under the charity's operation. The families staying at Ronald McDonald House enjoyed the meal and the company of the Blazers' women's basketball team.
"The Ronald McDonald House was such a great experience," said junior guard Miranda Burroughs. "It was a privilege to be involved with, and we plan on getting back there soon to help."
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama, Inc. (RMHCA) is committed to enhancing the lives of children and families, with a primary emphasis on facilitating access to pediatric health care for residents of Alabama and adjacent states.
RMHCA provides a safe, affordable, supportive `home-away-from-home' for sick or injured children and their families when they travel to Birmingham for medical treatment, and a place to rest and re-group while only steps from their sick child's bedside at Children's Hospital in Birmingham.
