ROME — The gift of giving did not end with the Christmas season for students at Rome Catholic School. Initiated by the school’s student council, Christmas trees used for decoration in December turned into “giving trees” in January.
Students and their families donated hats, mittens, scarves and other articles of warm clothing throughout the month. The items were given to the Rome Rescue Mission for distribution.
