The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island opened its doors in New Hyde Park in 1986.  It offers a “home away-from home” for almost 1000 families a year.  JFK students and staff chose RMDH as the charity of choice for our year-long fundraising efforts.  In December, eight members of student council chaperoned by their advisors participated in the Little Hands Baking Program.  The JFK family also presented a check for $1,400 from numerous fundraising efforts, as well as some toys for the children of the house donated by local families.

On May 29th, nine faculty members visited the RMDH with boxes of linens and various cleaning supplies from the house wish list.  All the supplies were collected as part of the student council “Spring Cleaning” drive.  As always, the generosity of our Bethpage families overwhelmed and touched the staff at the house.  JFK staff stayed to cook dinner for the Meals from the Heart Program.  Sixty residents came home to a lavish BBQ prepared with love and well wishes.
