Little kids doing big things! Help comes in many forms at RMHC Pittsburgh and Morgantown and as you will read in this issue of Feel Good Friday News, it also comes from kids of all ages. Before beginning their summer break, students from schools throughout the Pittsburgh and Morgantown areas found creative ways to help families at the Charity. Their spirit to give back and make a difference is inspiring and brings comfort to families traveling

for medical care.

The Helping Hands Club at Wyland Elementary supported families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Pittsburgh and Morgantown this spring. The students made and sold fluffy slime and presented the Charity with the proceeds. These amazing students picked the Charity, because one of the members already collects pull tabs and wanted to do more.

Inspired by a classmate’s story of his brother’s time spent in the hospital, the Norwin Middle School Jr National Honor Society chose Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh and Morgantown as the beneficiary of this year’s Penny Wars and Pull-Tab collection. In addition to raising funds for the Charity, they educated others about the mission of the Charity.

Hartwood Elementary School JAM! This club creates items, such as their trademarked #bethekindkid shirts, to donate or sell for profit to benefit causes of their choice. Through their work with a variety of charitable foundations, the children learn about a world that needs help, and are being empowered to make a difference. 36 students participated, and even gave up recess to work on their items.

West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and Blind collected wish list items for families at RMHC Pittsburgh and Morgantown. Their school has almost 100 students from across the state of West Virginia with varying needs, most of which stay on campus. Many of the students were born at WVU Medicine and had families staying at the Morgantown House. The students and staff look forward to continuing this new tradition every year.

Penn Hills Charter School of Entrepreneurship holds the proud distinction of being the first MicroSociety school to open with only a Kindergarten to Second Grade cohort of students! A MicroSociety is a unique educational model in which the student body is the economy. Through their MicroNight event, the students created waterbottles, craft kits, bracelets, and a variety of other items to donate to the families at RMHC – talk about creativity!
