Ronald McDonald House

The McFall Fuel Team cook for the families staying at the Domain Road House in Auckland three nights a year. This staff driven initiative came about because of what a staff member experienced in their family’s time at Ronald McDonald House while they supported a family member in Starship Hospital. Volunteers come from the Mcfall Fuel Team to help with the preparation of the food, the cooking of the meal, and the clean up as well as often supplying home cooking. Customers and suppliers have also offered their help and servcies. Taylor Brothers Transport and Mount New World make regular donations to support this humbling team effort.
