VIDEO: Rossi School Raises Money for Wounded Warriors ProjectPosted:
VINELAND - Last year, students at the Rossi School were able to raise almost $1,300 for the Wounded Warrior Project, which will benefit service men and women who have been injured in the line of duty.
This year, they set their goal even higher, but it's not just about the money, it's also about raising awareness.
"As a former Marine Sergeant, I feel that we need to support our Wounded Warriors more so that we can get the money to them and they can get their help," said Jim Nickels, Teacher at Rossi School. "This is a lifetime thing, not a quick fix. They need the money and it's for a good cause. And the students have really responded."
Students were given the chance to donate money in order to participate in a championship league of "Divide and Conquer." This is a game created by Mr. Mickels and the P.E. Department. It is a combination of tag, flag football, and capture the flag. Participating students were divided into teams and spent the day playing for a great cause.
