The Dumb Friends League Humane Education department is very fortunate to work with children of all ages who are committed to helping animals in need within their communities. We often hear about classes or entire schools that have held donation drives that supply us with hundreds of items from our “wish list” or fundraising events that help us accumulate the necessary dollars required to care for each animal. It is always great seeing students get involved in a compassionate project.
Recently, the students at Cloverleaf Enrichment Middle School took it to the next level. The students, along with the help of their parents, purchased and made items to go into gift baskets. Thirteen gift baskets to be exact. The collection included outdoor baskets, Italian dinner baskets, sports baskets and spa baskets. The school held a silent auction event for the Cloverleaf families and raised an amazing $705 for the League!
Kyle Warner, community educator, visited the school to accept the money raised and give a big thank you to everyone for their hard work and effort in supporting the animals in our care. Kyle also accepted a fun thank you card with pictures of the baskets and handwritten notes. In return, the students were so appreciative. We could not succeed in our mission without our compassionate community.
