The Pope John Paul III School in New Britain is receiving a several-thousand dollar donation thanks to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.
This grant, which will be awarded Wednesday, will allow the school to update computer equipment and purchase computers, software and hardware.
School officials will accept the grant at an assembly Wednesday Nov. 20 at 1 p.m. New Britain mayor Erin Stewart will attend, and Ronald McDonald himself plans to make a surprise appearance.
The school was established as Holy Cross School in 1954 and now serves students in grades Pre-K through 8. According to the school’s website, its mission is to empower students to meet the challenges of an ever-changing global society through prayer, service and faithfulness.
