During its Read for Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR) initiative, Schuylerville Elementary School raised $8,558.97, finishing sixth out of all participating Capital Region area schools!
Read for RMHC-CR is a reading-based community service program that partners with local elementary and middle schools. Readers gather sponsors for the reading they plan to do over a month’s time, and all the donations they earn are used to give love and support to families dealing with serious childhood illnesses and injuries.
Program participants start by selecting a reading month. During that month, students track the time they spend reading, and ask family and friends to sponsor their efforts. At the end of the month, donations are gathered and returned to RMHC-CR. Throughout the month, participants can also collect donations online through their own personal fundraising pages.
“During this extremely challenging time, these donations become even more critical to Ronald McDonald House Charities,” said RMHC-CR Coordinator, Nancy Damato. “I thank you for your efforts to bring this support to our RMHC families.”
In addition, RMHC gave t-shirts to Schuylerville students earning $500 or more in donations:
- Roman Ferrone
- Elliot Hempstead
- Kynlie Rudary
- Amelia Winney
Thank you to all who participated in this wonderful outreach!
