Two fifth grade classes at Nokomis designed and ran a donation drive to benefit Last Chance Animal Rescue.
Organized by teachers Jen De Carlo, Lisa Grant and Robyn Grieco, their efforts generated $500 in donations, as well as food, toys, beds and supplies that can be used at adoption events each weekend.
Students created flyers, wrote and presented commercials, made posters and collected items for dogs and cats in foster care. They also sold bracelets during lunch periods to raise funds.
Diane Magnani and Jenny Adams, representatives from Last Chance Animal Rescue, visited the school to thank the classes for their amazing work.
