We have truly been blessed over the years with the devotion of many school children, service organzations and clubs as well as their teachers and leaders who have supported our efforts from collecting food, to providing services and supporting animals. We are happy to feature here our very first class to sponsor a Share-A-Pet through our web site!
The 3rd Grade Class at the Highland Avenue School in Linden, NJ under the guidance of their teacher, Kenneth Kunz, wanted to sponsor a Share-A-Pet. Inspired by Shadow's story, they started a `change collection' to raise money to sponsor her, which they did on November 27, 2005. They were so excited, and also motivated by Shadow's holiday card to them, that they expanded the fundraiser into an all-out Holiday Pet Food Drive for the Associated Humane Societies.
Ken wrote `I know our students really appreciate everything you do for these precious animals ... the students love reading the HUMANE NEWS. Thank you again for all your support.'
Thank you Ken, and all your great kids in Grade 3 and the Highland Avenue School!! Pictured are a few photos of the kids carrying out the contents of 6-20 gallon tubs of food and treats plus blankets and towels.
