Maple Avenue Students Come Through for Charity
Students collect enough coins to buy more than 100 books for the Ronald McDonald House.
During the five-day Scholastic Books “One for Books” collection, students raised more than $500 by contributing specific coins each day. They started with pennies, and subsequently contributed nickels, dimes and quarters. On the final day, students brought in coins of their choice.
Maple Avenue fourth grade students organized the project, wrote and read school announcements, collected money and selected books. This is the third year Maple Avenue students have provided books for the children and families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House.
