What are we doing on May 11?

We are going to the Ronald McDonald House and decorating a hall with a summer theme for the residents. Our goal is to bring a smile to their faces and hope to their hearts each time they walk through the hall to their rooms. We will decorate the whole hallway, hanging art from the ceilings and on the walls and using magnets to attach artwork to doors with magnetic surfaces. You can send your artwork to Mrs. Owens at PA Leadership Charter School 55 Alpha Drive West, Pittsburgh, PA 15238 or bring it with you on May 11 to help decorate in person!

What can we do now?

Schools, offices, community groups and individuals can help the charity by collecting pull tabs. The tabs can be taken to a local scrap metal yard and weighed for cash. You can then send a check that will help with the mission which is to focus on the well-being of the families. Also, you can drop off your tabs to the House and they will take care of the recycling.
