Spruce Elementary second grader Morgan sits amidst the spoils of the pet food drive they hosted for PAWS
For the second grade students at Spruce Elementary, there's one part of the school day that stands out above the rest—snack time! So when the students learned that PAWS was in need of pet food supplies, they jumped at the chance to help fill the tummies of hungry cats and dogs at their local animal shelter.
"The children identified three brands of pet food from the PAWS Wish List and set a goal of collecting 400 items to donate," says Spruce Elementary teacher (and pet food drive organizer) Jennie Warmouth. "They were so excited to be helping the animals at PAWS!"
The students created a beautiful banner to publicize the pet food drive, and before they knew it the donations started rolling in. Thanks to these thoughtful students, the cats, kittens, dogs and puppies at PAWS will have plenty to eat.
Thank you to the second graders in Jennie Warmouth's class at Spruce Elementary for being champions for animals!
