I would like to commend the APWU Health Plan team for their outstanding volunteer work at the Ronald McDonald House in Baltimore, MD. On May 27, the volunteers spent the day baking for families who are staying at the house. Their hard work and dedication make a real difference in the lives of these families.

The Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families with children who are receiving medical treatment at nearby hospitals. Our volunteers helped to make the house a more comfortable and welcoming place for these families.

Every year the APWU Health Plan staff participates in many charitable community events. Some examples include the Greater Baltimore Heart Walk, Step Out and Walk to Stop Diabetes, the Washington DC Diabetes Walk, and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. In addition, the APWU Health Plan staff hosts many charitable activities, including donations to the Light House Shelter and the Baltimore VA Medical Center, a toy drive for Toys for Tots, and food drives for the Maryland Food Bank.

I am grateful for the commitment of the APWU Health Plan employees to helping others. The volunteer work at the Ronald McDonald House is another exemplary example of their dedication to making a difference in the community. 
