On November 30th, students along with Mrs. Rafferty, Mrs. Lee, and Mr. Sefcik went to the Ronald McDonald House for a service learning trip to host a meal for families in need. Students spent time carefully choosing recipes, relating the food chosen to their own "favorite comfort foods,” and made a grocery list. They made posters to advertise and collected money in the student cafeteria and by visiting administrative offices. In addition, they created a letter to distribute to friends and family to raise funds.
As part of their work, the students raised funds to pay for the meal and were able to give an additional goodwill donation to RMHC for almost $450. That money goes directly to help families in need at the Oak Lawn Advocate Christ Hospital location. Special thanks to the small group of students who put forth great effort to make this event successful and to Fiona McMahon who raised over 50% of the funds herself. Great job!
