Ashley Falls students joined the Red Shoe Crew May 18 to support families with children facing serious medical conditions at local hospitals.
Student council leaders guided their fellow students through activities offering encouragement to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. The entire school attended an assembly to learn how the Ronald McDonald House helps families with children in the hospital. Student council members then worked with children in the younger grades to color pictures that will be included in Welcome Bags given to families upon check-in. The following morning, the student council collected donations in Ronald’s size 14 red shoes. Through their incredible efforts, the school collected over $1,250 and was able to meet its goal to provide lodging and hot meals for families served by the House.
