The RMS Junior United Nations Assembly delegates sponsored a Candy Cane Gram sale to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The super typhoon hit the Philippine islands in late November, leaving tens of thousands dead and $14 billion worth of destruction. The Candy Cane Gram fundraiser raised $395.92.
In addition, the RMS Student Council sponsored the RMS Iron Bowl. The event generated $421.00. RMS raised a total of $816.92 for Philippine typhoon relief. Proceeds from the Candy Cane Gram sale and RMS Iron Bowl were sent to the American Red Cross Philippine Typhoon Relief Fund.
RMS teacher Ms. Hannah Rodgers said, “As a Filipino-American, this is near and dear to my heart. Thank you RMS for your kindness and generosity!”
