Rome Free Academy freshman makes donation to Humane Society
HUMANE SOCIETY DONATION — Rome Free Academy freshman sponsored two shelter animals, Pita the dog and Harley the kitten, from the Humane Society of Rome. Representing the Humane Society is manager Helen Rudiak with Harley the kitten and Dennis Raymond with Pita the dog. Approximately 75 students voluntarily practiced civic participation by creating posters, fundraising, and attending an educational presentation. Rudiak gave a presentation about this compassionate community issue and opportunities for additional student community action. RFA social studies teacher Daniel Dunn, science teacher Nancy Neiley (Rotary Interact Club), and math teacher Michelle Richardson (Key Club) hosted the 14th annual after school event on Friday raising a donation of over $600.
