Before school let out for the summer, members of the Dickerson Middle School Pay It Forward Club sorted large containers of travel-sized toiletry items donated by their fellow students.
In the end, the students packed 138 toiletry kits for the Ronald McDonald House. This was the third year that Dickerson students held a toiletry drive to support the families in need at the Atlanta charity.
The Dickerson school family supports the Ronald McDonald House throughout the school year. Before the spring toiletry drive, students collected more than 100,000 pop-tabs, which the Ronald McDonald House recycles to raise money for the families who they support.
The Dickerson students are not letting the summer break stop them from their charitable support. Students, teachers, and parents have already delivered cookies and muffins for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and they have another trip planned. In addition to the delicious sweets, members of the Dickerson community, including teachers, staff, students, and families, are hosting a cookout and games for those staying at the house in mid-July.
When the school starts again in August, they plan to continue their support of the charity aimed at nurturing the health and well-being of children and families.
