When Catholic Central students Damon Rottermond and David Salvatori heard one of their teachers speak last year of her nephew born with a heart condition that could prove fatal — and how the Ronald McDonald House Charities aided the child’s family while he endured surgery and other treatment to save his life — they knew right away it was an organization they wanted to help.
