Thank you Cenovus Energy and FCSS Bonnyville & District for your generous support to the fourth annual Meals That Mend: Lakeland Holiday Edition that took place on Saturday, November 25th, at the Cold Lake Courtyard by Marriott. At this beautiful venue over 115 attendees enjoyed crafts, Rachel’s Party Paint and balloon art, a delicious meal, a visit from Santa, and family photo’s courtesy of Rebecca Gillis Photography.

Holiday magic was definitely in the air. Below two House families share why they attended the meal and what the support of the community and Ronald McDonald House means to them:

“Our family traveled almost two hours to attend the Meals That Mend: Holiday Edition party in Cold Lake, but this event was more than just a part. It was catching up with families who lived in the same House as us when our child went through major surgery. It was a place to connect with new families who know the struggle. It was a place to celebrate these amazing children who truly are a miracle. Thank you Cenovus!” -The Warren Family

“The RMHCNA Meals That Mend program is a tremendous opportunity for Lakeland families to get together, enjoy fun activities, and connect with each other over past experiences. The Ronald McDonald House is such an amazing resource for families who are unable to be home. We will never be able to repay the House for what they were able to do for us. We truly appreciate the opportunity Cenovus provided.” – The Van Duyn Family

We are very grateful for your support of our families and we hope to see you again next year!
