Members of Manhasset’s National Art Honor Society created coloring books and donated them to the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park. Around 40 high school students drew pages for children to color, which were then bound together to create a book.
The coloring books will go to kids under pediatric care and their families who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House to help brighten their days during a difficult time. The National Art Honor Society was able to donate a total of 200 books, along with packs of crayons.
The Ronald McDonald House keeps families who are seeking medical treatment for their children physically near the care they need. It also provides a community of support outside of the clinical setting.
