Ronald McDonald House gets a boost from elementary school
NORTH LIBERTY – A group of young students is giving back to those dealing with health problems.

22 kindergarteners through fourth graders from North Liberty Christian School collected money all year and then bought 1,200 snack packs.

On Tuesday, they delivered them to the Ronald McDonald House at Memorial Hospital.

The teachers and parents gave the students a choice of where they wanted to donate, and they chose helping families of sick kids.

“Their hearts really went out to the families,” said Adriane Baker of North Liberty Christian School. “It really hit home when they know it’s kids their ages of families that are using this house. So, they really did grasp the importance of why it’s here, and their hearts really went out to the families.”

Last year, the students collected enough money for 800 snack packs for the Ronald McDonald House.
