FCCLA Chapter Donates $2,000 to Ronald McDonald House

FCCLA Officers present a check to Keiana Mitchell, RMH Community Partnerships Associate

The Ohio Hi-Point FCCLA Chapter, consisting of the Early Childhood Education and level two Culinary students, presented a check for $2,330 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio in March.

The students raised the money through a pumpkin roll fundraiser in November. The students baked and delivered over 200 pumpkin rolls before Thanksgiving break.

“I was totally shocked with their generous donation,” said Meredith Harrison, donor relations manager for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, “the students should be very proud of all their hard work and what they do to support our children and families.”

After presenting the check, the group toured the Ronald McDonald House and met some of the families.

“It was a great experience for our students,” said Donna Beale, OHP culinary arts instructor and FCCLA advisor, “everyone was emotional, but it’s important for our students to see what an impact they can have on the lives of others.”

This is not the first year the FCCLA Chapter has donated to the Ronald McDonald House. The annual pumpkin roll fundraiser is a staple in helping Ohio Hi-Point FCCLA students raise money for the organization.

Next year, the Ohio Hi-Point FCCLA Chapter hopes to raise $2,500. The FCCLA advisors are Donna Beale and Angie Walls, early childhood education instructor.

The FCCLA Chapter (Level 2 Culinary students and ECE labs) donated $2,330 to the Ronald McDonald Charities of Central Ohio.
