The Ronald McDonald House Pantry Drive. 

The Ronald McDonald House of New York is a home away from home for families from across the country and around the world while their children are being treated at New York City Hospitals.  Although families pay a nominal fee to stay there, they are still faced with costs for the purchase of food, paper goods, and other products while they are there.  Some of the children’s illnesses require them to remain for months at a time.

The drive will take place from Monday March 19th through Thursday March 29th.  We will be collecting items to stock the pantry (paper goods and other necessities) for the families living there.  Each grade is assigned a few items (see list below).  Please do not bring in food items to donate.  Our goal is for each student and staff member to bring in one item to contribute; the more items the better though!  We are excited to help such a worthy cause and we are thankful to all who participate.

All items will be collected in large bags (blue and/or brown- provided by The Ronald McDonald House) outside of the main office of PS 77 and near the main entrance of PS 198.  Please see the list below for the grade specific items that we will be collecting to support the Ronald McDonald House.
