Elementary Schools Benefit Ronald McDonald House
Twelve Central Valley School District elementary schools and the Kindergarten Center rallied in a year-long pop top collection competition to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Spokane. The district-wide competition raised 1,225 pounds of pop tops which will help cover nearly 26 nights of lodging at the RMH.
Launched last year by parent volunteer Doug Cooper, the pop top challenge generated a friendly fundraising competition resulting in Adams Elementary taking first place, followed by Progress Elementary in second place and the Kindergarten Center in third place.
“I think it’s important to give our kids a fun, meaningful way to get involved in community service while also supporting local families in need,” Cooper said.
Adams Elementary will celebrate their victory in September with a special visit from Ronald McDonald himself. Last year’s competition netted 1,150 pounds of pop tops. Other elementary schools involved in the fundraiser include Broadway, Chester, Greenacres, Liberty Lake, McDonald, Opportunity, Ponderosa, South Pines, Sunrise and University.
