Goddard Schools across the nation work to raise $250,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities
To celebrate 25 years of service to communities nationwide as leaders in early childhood education, The Goddard School is kicking off their 25th anniversary festivities with a special fundraising campaign to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®).
To commemorate this milestone year for The Goddard School, Goddard Schools nationwide are joining in the celebration and fundraising efforts, with the hopes of helping reach a national goal of $250,000.
To reach each school’s individual goal of $577, Goddard Schools will be fundraising until February 15. The majority of the money raised locally will stay in each school’s local community. The nearly 400 Goddard Schools nationwide will be fundraising to support children and families served by their local RMHC Chapters.
“At The Goddard School, even the youngest children learn about compassion and cooperation. This partnership with RMHC provides a fantastic opportunity for children to learn about good deeds and what it means to support those in need,” said Sue Adair, Director of Education at GSI. “The fundraising efforts for RMHC allow the children to learn firsthand the importance of helping other families in their communities and across the country.”
In addition to each school’s fundraising efforts, the children will be creating birthday cards to support children served by their local RMHC Chapter. The birthday cards will be distributed throughout the year by RMHC directors to pediatric patients or family members celebrating birthdays during their, or a loved one’s, hospital stay. For every card that Goddard Schools collect, Goddard Systems, Inc., franchisor of The Goddard School, will donate $1 to RMHC (up to $25,000).
“We are grateful for the support we receive from The Goddard School. By raising awareness and funds for RMHC, together, we are able to help provide hope, healing, resources and strength to families who are facing the battle of their child’s medical crisis,” said Marty Coyne, president and CEO, RMHC.
