Apple Montessori Schools is proud to aid the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the New York Tri-State Area through its annual school-wide donation program.

Since 2011, Apple Montessori’s 15 preschools in New Jersey have worked together to raise an average of $20,000 per year through the Spring Olympic Day Fundraiser and generous donations from the Bailey Family, the founding family of Apple Montessori Schools.

Over the last year, Apple Montessori has raised more than $31,000 and donations have now totaled $157,595.

Donations are used to support RMHC of the New York Tri-State Area’s grants to five Ronald McDonald Houses in the New York metropolitan area, which are homes away from home for the families of seriously ill, hospitalized children.

Spring Olympic Day is a fun day of relay races and obstacle courses for the children at Apple Montessori. But more importantly, it teaches them valuable lessons about compassion and generosity.

“The work that RMHC does to help families through such difficult times is so important,” said Joanne Mooney, President of Apple Montessori Schools. “Children are miracles, and we are proud to do our part to ensure they feel cared for, supported and safe.”

The relationship between Apple Montessori Schools and Ronald McDonald House Charities has grown to be mutually beneficial.

“We are thankful for the continued support of The Bailey Family and the entire Apple Montessori Schools community,” said Christopher Perry, RMHC New York Tri-State Area’s Executive Director. “Their generous contributions will make a significant difference in the lives of children and families that we serve.”
