Ronald McDonald House


As a part of the celebration of Catholic Schools Week highlighting service to others, the Epiphany School is partnering with Ronald McDonald House to help stock the Parents’ Pantry. Ronald McDonald House provides a home to families while their very sick children/ siblings are receiving life saving care in New York City hospitals. The families prepare their own meals using items from the Parents’ Pantry.

Every grade is assigned a specific food category. All donations must be in new, well-sealed packaging. Only non-perishable items are accepted. And organic items are preferred, although not required.
