Goddard and the Ronald McDonald House Charities Celebrate 25 Years!

This February is the 25th anniversary of the Goddard School and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Together they partnered to raise money for sick children.

This February is the 25th birthday of the Goddard School! The Goddard School in Wall will have a week-long celebration February 4th – Saturday, February 9th. The Goddard School Birthday Party is more than a party – it is a national educational event celebrating 25 years of learning through play.

To kickoff this milestone event, the Goddard School has formed a partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The Goddard School of Wall is seeking to raise $577 to contribute to the country-wide Goddard goal of $250,000. This money will be donated to the RMHC, who is also celebrating their 25th year anniversary.

The Ronald McDonald house’s mission is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. Similar to the beliefs of Goddard, RMHC believes that when you change a child’s life, you change a family’s, which can change a community, and ultimately the world. In honor of Goddard’s 25th birthday celebration, please help us raise money to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. We will be accepting donations between January 14th and February 12th.

During our Birthday celebration week in February, all the children will be creating birthday cards. These cards will be distributed throughout the year by RMHC directors to pediatric patients or family members celebrating birthdays during their, or a loves one’s, hospital stay. Goddard School Inc. (GSI) will donate $25,000 for the first 25,000 birthday cards made ($1 per card). We are asking families to help us create special birthday cards to donate to the RMHC.

With your help, we can make this a wonderful, fun and successful 25th anniversary celebration for both the Goddard School and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. If you would like make a monetary donation or create a birthday card, please contact our educational director Miss Samantha at  732-974-8314. Thank you in advance for your support!
