ISE students next year are going to volunteer at Ronald McDonald Houses throughout the country Hauppauge, NY \u2013 August 19th, 2013 \u2013 The International Student Exchange (ISE), which places almost 3,000 foreign exchange students a year, is partnering up with RMHC to provide community service hours, through the Charity\u2019s cornerstone program \u2013 the Ronald McDonald House, Chapter kits and possible fundraising activities. ISE started a volunteer student program called \u201cProject HELP\u201d back in 2006. The program is designed to increase community service for their foreign exchange students. Each student completes a minimum of five hours. Most students surpass their minimum requirement\u2026 \u201cProject Help has really taken off the past couple of years,\u201d said Wayne Brewer, CEO of International Student Exchange. This year we wanted to partner up with a national organization that could provide our students great community service opportunities. The RMH program offers that opportunity.\u201d RMHC is known throughout the U.S. as one of the most reputable family-centered charities. It will give ISE students the chance to work within their community and nationally. ISE also encourages host families and friends to participate. Gary Lubrat, Project Help Co-Chair stated, \u201cWe want the students to learn how important it is to give back to their community. After they end their experience in the United States, we want them to continue to help people once they return home. RMHC, and the RDH program will allow them to do that.\u201d Ronald McDonald House Charities\u00ae (RMHC\u00ae), a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) corporation, creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.
