A desire to help the Ronald McDonald House has middle school kids selling cookies for a cause.
In the Central Avenue McDonald’s restaurant in Billings, Montana, two Will James Middle School students rolled their cookie cart past people sitting at tables, stopping to ask if they would buy cookies to raise money for the local Ronald McDonald House. Madi Keeley and Coryn Martinez wheeled a cart with chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies, priced at two for $1 or $4 for a dozen.
The girls asked Calvin Erhart if he would buy some. “Sure,” he agreed, paying a dollar for two oatmeal raisin cookies. “I think it’s a great thing for young kids to get involved in things like that,” Erhart said.
15 eighth graders are participating in the Two Roads Project, and they raise money for community charities of their choice.
