Ronald’s Rescue: Supporting Families and Raising Money
March 10, 2017
Padua Academy offers many clubs and groups students can join to make their high school experience even more memorable. Ronald’s Rescue was founded by students six years ago by two students who wanted to make a difference and give to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. With about 100 members in the club, members help organize and hold fundraisers throughout the school year. “Ronald’s Rescue has two major events throughout the year, the Pancake Breakfast in December and the Wiffle Ball tournament in April”, says Senior Nicole Bush. “But this year in hopes to raise even more money Ronald’s Rescue is holding a Kendra Scott trunk show in April and 20% of the profits are going towards the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware”, she says.
When asked why she wanted to be a part of Ronald’s Rescue Nicole says “For me personally, I just loved what the club was all about the Ronald McDonald House is such a worthy cause and going their for the first time and seeing and interacting with the people that lived their really made me want to do more for this amazing place”. Not only does the club help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House but members frequently visit and cook dinner for the residents. “It’s such a rewarding experience to be a part of it, and I’m always going to remember making a difference in someone’s life”, says Nicole
