PBC celebrates Read Across America month with the Ronald McDonald House

Coeymans Elementary School.

For the second year, the Pieter B. Coeymans community has the opportunity to help those in need. To celebrate “Read Across America” month, students will participate in the Read for Ronald McDonald House fundraiser. This fundraiser will benefit our local Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing for families of seriously ill children who are receiving treatment at local area hospitals.

Packets were sent home with students on March 4 following an opening assembly presented by Nancy Damato, Program Coordinator for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
