GREENFIELD — During the week of Aug. 21-25, J.B. Stephens Elementary School partnered with the Ronald McDonald House to help restock the individual residences with food and household items.
Ronald McDonald Houses around the country play host to the families of thousands of children who are hospitalized due to long-term illness. The houses provide a place for families to be close to sick children at little or no cost, but they depend on donations to restock supplies.
J.B. Stephens approached the school-wide donation project by creating a theme for each day and accepting different kinds of donations each day.
Monday was Pajama Day; sugar and coffee were collected. Tuesday was Crazy Hair Day; salad dressing and mayonnaise were collected.
Wednesday’s collection items were paper products such as bowls, plates and cups for Super Hero Day.
Thursday, the students brought in soup for Stuffed Animal Day.
Friday was Hat Day, and the students donated snacks.
The supplies were delivered over the weekend by second-grade teacher Krista Steeno.
