Dayton City School student council members spent their morning visiting sick children and families at the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House. The students also made a $500 donation to the Ronald McDonald House as part of a longstanding tradition at the school to help local charities.
Each year, more than two dozen student council members participate in various fundraisers to help raise funds; activities include hosting an Easter egg promotion, coloring contest and sale of Christmas cards.
The funds will help provide nine nights of comfort for a family at the Ronald McDonald House while their critically ill child is receiving care at the hospital. It costs $55 per day to provide a night stay for a family
