The National Honor Society at the Robinson has passed out baby bottles to each home room. They have asked students to place their change into these bottles to raise money for this organization.

The March of Dimes Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises money to help prevent birth defects, infant mortality, and premature babies. The organization was founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt, who wanted to help fight polio. Over time, it has transitioned to raise awareness for the health of mothers and their babies.

The March of Dimes provides pregnant women with educational research on baby health and support for families with premature babies with health problems. They provide about half a million babies a year with support.

The home room who raises the most will win a lasagna party. The last day to raise money is April 17.
