Zubatkin Volunteers with Ronald McDonald House New York

Zubatkin Volunteers with Ronald McDonald House New York

Last month, members of the Zubatkin team volunteered their time to serve dinner at the Ronald McDonald House, an organization that provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families.

We are currently working with Ronald McDonald House New York on the renovation and expansion of their facility.  The project will increase the House’s capacity and improve the quality of life for the patients they host by adding six post-transplant suites and eleven additional family units, relocating the wellness center, upgrading the mechanical systems, and expanding dining room seating.  Other capital improvements, including window refurbishments and a lobby renovation, will also be implemented.  The project will be completed in June of 2017.
