ROMS Legacy Day fundraiser

A ROMS Legacy Day group of students, along with their adult sponsor, asked that I pass this charity opportunity on to the community. If you are looking for a worthy cause, read on: "For our 8th Grade ROMS Legacy Project, our group, under the supervision and support of Ms. Jessica Quinn, ROMS teacher, has chosen to set up a GoFundMe campaign to donate to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The World Wildlife Fund protects endangered species and their habitats.
