Project description

KCC members worked with Student Government on a food drive for the families who need to stay at Ronald McDonald House NY while their children are receiving cancer treatments at NYC hospitals. They encouraged donations from the students of PS 173, sorted and boxed the canned and boxed goods for Ronald McDonald House NYC. In addition, they sorted and boxed donations which came from other schools in our District. On April 29, 2017, the KCC members, along with Student Government members, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, families and siblings, participated in the Ronald McDonald House Family Fun Run/Walk at St. John's University in Jamaica Estates. This food collection helps the families of the sick children both emotionally and financially, because the families don't have to worry about how to feed the rest of the family while they are housed at RMcD House and can concentrate on their sick child.
