Task Description

The Bridor Company offers us ready-to-bake pastries for our families that just need to be  baked in the oven. Just the smell of freshly baked croissants or other baked goods is very comforting!

The House has a variety of decorations for different celebrations like Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, etc., which remind people of home.

The volunteers at the reception welcome the families when they arrive, answer their questions, visit their rooms when they leave and answer the phone.
