The Lena High School volleyball team raised over $600 to purchase food for a buffet and homemade snack ingredients for guests at the Ronald McDonald House, along with extra items from the house’s wish list.

Donations were provided by Badger Paper Mill, community members, family members and Lena School’s L Club, Booster Club and National Honor Society.

Team members purchased ingredients for breakfast burritos, a yogurt bar, fresh fruit tray, spinach salad, ham and cheesy potato casserole, pancakes, muffins, sausage, bacon, milk and juice. The food was brought to the Ronald McDonald House to be prepared.

Snacks ingredients were used to make puppy chow, seasoned pretzels, Jello cups, cookies and cookie bars.

Wish list items included travel-sized hygiene items for about 12 people. The team also purchased newborn baby supplies and bags of snacks.

The volunteer work was a group effort. Gina Peterson and Michele Bushmaker helped plan the meals and made the shopping lists. Joy Sylvester, Mary Hodkiewicz, Wendy Cook and Cheryl Place volunteered to supervise the girls and drive them to the Ronald McDonald House in Milwaukee.
