Join PJ Library for a service project to help families staying at the Ronald McDonald House (RMDH). The RMDH is a home away from home for families while their children are in the hospital, and keeps families with sick children together and near the care and resources they need. 

Help make Care Kits and cards for families staying at RMDH, and learn about the importance of doing Mitzvahs (good deeds). Children will also be able to decorate and take home their own mini RMDH Pop Tab Collection House to continue doing good deeds and supporting RMDH. 

Children of all ages are welcome.
