Ledgemont Elementary Generously Supports Ronald McDonald House

Ledgemont Kindergarten Class

Students and staff at Ledgemont Elementary demonstrated generosity and kindness through a recent donation of one-hundred-fifty pounds of aluminum pull tabs which will be recycled and converted into monetary support for the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland’s Family Fund. The donation drive began in the fall of 2019 as a grade level competition with a prize awarded to the grade level with the most aluminum pull tabs donated at the end of each nine-week grading period. Kindergarten received a pizza party at the end of the first nine weeks courtesy of Capps Pizza in Leroy Township, while the second-grade classrooms won a donut party after the second grading period. Despite the disruption caused by the ongoing pandemic, students and staff continued to bring in tab donations over the past year and a half. Ledgemont Physical Education teacher Shaun Forbes coordinated all donations and in July 2021, delivered the one-hundred-fifty pounds of aluminum tabs to the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland (RMH). The resulting funds generated from the recycled tabs will help to support families that stay at RMH by providing meals and assorted items, assistance during emergencies, and the opportunity to stay together under one roof while accessing health care services. Congratulations to Ledgemont Elementary School for their wonderful generosity and support of the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, and for proudly representing the Berkshire Local Schools!
