Senior Capstone Project

Mallory Pitchford is a senior at James River High School and is enrolled in the Center for Leadership and International Relations. Through this program, Mallory was tasked with a Senior Capstone Service Project. Mallory chose Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond as the organization she wanted to work with to complete her project. As a part of her project, Mallory brought a group of classmates to volunteer to make dinner for families at the Ronald McDonald House and do activities with the children. In addition, Mallory hosted a Ronald McDonald Challenge this past December where she challenged her classmates to raise 10 mg money by paying to vote for a teacher to dress up as Ronald McDonald. Mallory has also been raising money from friends and family to support RMHC and will give the proceeds to go towards making physical space improvement at the House. Mallory said that she has enjoyed working with the Ronald McDonald House Charities on this project as it helped her understand our mission and make a direct impact on the lives of families in need. Thank you, Mallory, for all of your hard work! We appreciate your support!
