Ramily Matters is looking for high school student volunteers to help out on every Tuesday of the month when Ramily meets. For the month of November, Ramily is meeting at the Middle School on November 13.

“Students do receive service hours for volunteering at our events,” said Ramily Matters leader Sarah Rozniecki. “It is our goal to have a pool of regular volunteers to help with things like set up, clean up, serving meals, child care, assistance with activities for elementary-aged students and helping facilitate some of our other activities.”

This month Ramily Matters is teaming up with an organization called RESPECT for the first time. RESPECT is an organization that helps give children, teens, college students and adults throughout Iowa the skills needed to prevent and stop bullying and other forms of abuse in relationships.

Mills County Public Health has worked with RESPECT to sponsor presentations and assemblies at school districts in Mills County in the past. Due to time constraints in booking RESPECT, local districts have not been able to host assemblies with this troupe in the recent past. However, Ramily Matters requested to work with MCPH to sponsor RESPECT to come to an event as an effort to deliver information to families about how to combat bullying and other relational issues between children and teens.

RESPECT uses educational theatre programs specifically to convey the information, skills and resources our audiences need to help themselves and help their peers. They enhance their participants’ abilities to be safe and healthy in a wide area of challenging relationships and situations.

Ramily Matters is currently on their third year since they first started in fall of 2016. Ramily Matters also donates to the community and gives families many opportunities to connect with one another.

“Each month, Ramily Matters offers families a free meal, free books to take home for kids, as well as a night of learning and bonding as a family,” said Rozniecki.
