Student chapter of PSEA lends hand at Ronald McDonald House
Ten members of Slippery Rock University Student-Pennsylvania State Education Association chapter completed a community-service project earlier this month that included preparing dinner for 40 people, including parents and children, at the Shadyside Ronald McDonald House.
"After dinner, we made Valentine's Day crafts with the children so their parents could have a break from being with them all day at the hospital," said Lauren Pangrazi, vice president of the campus PSEA chapter and an elementary education/early childhood major from Vandergrift. "We were appreciated more than we knew by the parents and children staying at the house who were facing surgery and serious illness. It was a terrific project."
The group also delivered 30 bags of "wish list" items, including food and toiletries needed and used by those staying at the house.
Other elementary education majors participating were: Maria Rendine, chapter president from Mount Pleasant; Sarah Kovach. secretary from Greensburg; Jocelyn Fennell, treasurer, from Greensburg; Kerrianne Mackowski, Natrona Heights; Amy Guiliani, Monroeville; Kelly O'Leary, South Park; and Brittany Kitterman, Bethal Park.
