R. Roger Rowe Middle School students demonstrate ‘Leadership Through Philanthropy’

R. Roger Rowe Middle School’s student council developed the “Leadership Through Philanthropy Project” under the direction of Paul Coco (Asst. Principal) and Maureen Cassarino (Student Council Advisor). The team partnered with Dave Baker and Steve Knight of The Philanthropy Club Foundation to organize and facilitate a philanthropic activity each month to benefit local nonprofit organizations.

In December students participated in a Holiday Drive to benefit The Monarch School in San Diego.

“We thank Sarah Lackey (member of the middle school) for all of her hard work in organizing such a successful drive and creating such an awareness for The Monarch School in San Diego. Over 400 items and $2,000 were donated to support the students at Monarch.” Please visit http://www.monarchschools.org/ for more information.

In January students continue to participate in “Quilts for the Cat Cause and Hot Dogs for the Dog Cause.” 7th and 8th grade students are currently donating used blankets and quilts to Helen Woodward Animal Center. The blankets and quilts will surely keep rescued cats warm. Students will also participate in a fundraising hotdog luncheon to support Helen Woodward Animal Center. Representatives from Helen Woodward will also be joining the luncheon with a few furry friends.  — RSF School
