Urban Wren Winery, a restaurant and winery concept located in Markley Station, recently partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities ® (RMHC) of the Carolinas in Greenville to serve meals to families.
On Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020, from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., the Urban Wren team provided free meals to the parents and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. In order to ensure the highest of food safety—especially during COVID-19 —each meal was prepared and individually packaged before it was delivered.
“One of our biggest values at Urban Wren is service. Being able to grow our relationships within our community and serve those most in need is of highest importance to everyone on our team,” said Nick Lincoln, Executive Director of Urban Wren. “This experience was just one more way we could give back to those in our community—many of whom haven’t been home for a meal together in a while—by serving great food and great service, which is what we do best.”
RMHC® of the Carolinas, which opened April 1, 1989, features 24 guest rooms for families of children who are being treated at The Greenville Memorial campus of Prisma Health. Operating under the idea that “when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed,” RMHC® of the Carolinas allows families to stay close by, removing at least one worry during a medical misfortune.
“Thanks to the Urban Wren team, our families were greeted with the smells of a home-cooked meal and the delicious taste of a hearty lasagna dinner,” said Katie Clark, Volunteer and Communications Coordinator at Ronald McDonald House. “We would be unable to continue our mission of keeping families close to their sick or injured child without volunteers and supporters like the Urban Wren team.”
