Students at McGann-Mercy High School presented representatives of the Ronald McDonald House with a check for $9000.

Each year students at McGann-Mercy High School choose a charity for which they raise funds. The student club “Mercy on a Mission” selected Kids Stock the House, the charity for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island located in New Hyde Park, as its charity for the 2017-2018 school year.

The students raised funds throughout the year for Ronald McDonald House through bake sales, spaghetti dinners, dress down days, and other fundraising activities.
