Ronald McDonald House, CSX celebrate decade of service partnership


The time, treasure and talents donated by local volunteers are critical to the success of area charities. And there are no better volunteers than the ones who show their support year after year.
This summer, San Marco-based Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville, had an opportunity to celebrate the longtime efforts of such a volunteer group. In mid-July, Ronald McDonald House celebrated CSX Intermodal employees. The CSX volunteers, who call themselves CSX Intermodal Caring Chefs, have been preparing meals once a month for the families of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville for the past 10 years.
The meals have not been standard faire either, according to Ronald McDonald House officials. The caring chefs have prepared everything from Hawaiian luaus to Italian feasts and Mexican fiestas. During the past 10 years, the CSX Intermodal volunteers have served more than 3,600 families of ill and injured children during their decade of volunteering.
During the summer celebration, CSX Intermodal Caring Chefs were joined by company president, Bill Clement. The group wore anniversary T-shirts and aprons and prepared a festive summer barbecue for families at the house.
