Red Mill students put their reading skills to good work, raising $3,586 for the Ronald McDonald House in Albany. About 60 students from grades K-5 participated in the Read for Ronald McDonald House Program by securing sponsorships and donations.
The money was donated to the Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home away from home, free of charge, for families with children who are terminally ill or facing life-threatening challenges.
Red Mill teachers Sarah Flannery and Brittany Slagen attended a reception with 4th grade students Kindle Young and Elizabeth Durfee at the Ronald McDonald House on May 17.
“It was truly a great experience to see so many children getting involved to help other children who are ill,” Mrs. Slagen said. The kids can understand the need and importance for families to be able to stay close to one another during such a difficult time.”
