San Diego ZSers Whip up Treats for Ronald McDonald House

San Diego ZSers participated in the office’s first ZS Cares event of 2018 by volunteering at their local Ronald McDonald House, an organization that provides a “home-away-from-home” for families with children being treated for serious conditions at nearby hospitals, including Rady Children’s Hospital.

Our volunteers baked over 10 dozen cookies and brownies for children and families staying at the San Diego chapter’s house. Following their baking duties, the group went on a tour of the amenity-packed facility that provides over 160 meals a day for families and can house up to 48 families to learn more about its history and the community.

San Diego ZSers "escape" to the mountains

ZSers from our San Diego office recently took to the mountains, trekking to Southern California’s San Bernardino National Forest for two days of team building, recreation and a little fresh air.

UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead Conference Center, a 42-acre wooded property nestled high in the mountains, provided a quietly comfortable backdrop for the offsite retreat. After coming together to reflect on the last six years since the San Diego office was established, ZSers spent the afternoon playing tennis and basketball, hiking and taking in the scenery.
