Mill Creek Elementary School students are very excited to support Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana and the Cadence Health Foundation this school year, as these two organizations work together to build a Ronald McDonald House® near Cadence Health – CDH Campus.
Mill Creek Elementary School is focusing all of its fundraising efforts this school year on the Cadence Health Foundation (which includes Delnor Hospital in Geneva and Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield) and the Ronald McDonald House project. The school’s goal is to raise $5,000.
Earlier this winter, Mill Creek Elementary’s student council worked closely with the Child Life Program at Central DuPage Hospital and held a very successful holiday toy drive, which netted 330 new toys and art/craft items for children admitted to CDH’s Pediatric Oncology unit. Pictures attached.
This week, the student council will kick off the “Coins for Kids” program, which will run through Valentine’s Day. During this drive, students will collect spare change as a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House® near Cadence Health – CDH Campus, for which construction will begin in March.
Students are working to identify additional creative fundraisers to support this project through the rest of the school year. Updates on fundraisers and Mill Creek Elementary School’s progress towards its $5,000 goal will be available on the school’s website.
Mill Creek families and friends may also make monetary donations to Ronald McDonald House® near Cadence Health – CDH Campus by bringing a cash or check donation (payable to Cadence Health Foundation with a memo of Ronald McDonald House) to the Mill Creek Elementary School office or by making an online contribution here.
