Students raised $742.11 for humane society

Under the organizing leadership of teacher Ms. Emily, students at The Learning Center Charter raised $742.11 for the Valley River Humane Society during their month long campaign in January.

As part of the fundraising efforts, students had the option to dress as their favorite animal to school on January 18th for a $2 donation.

Valley River Humane Society (VRHS) is a non-profit volunteer organization with the primary goal of reducing the number of homeless animals in our community by the promotion of spay and neutering, and by the adoption of homeless animals.

Ms. Emily learned of the special needs drive VRHS is running and organized the fundraising event at the school.  “I know it takes compassion, commitment and service to take care of animals and I also know that kids are full of love, enthusiasm, and eagerness to help,” said Ms. Emily. “Our students jumped at the chance to raise money for VRHS.”

UPDATE:  Kirsty Waller, manager at VRHS, was very thankful of our generous donation and said that $700 goes a long way. Ms. Emily also dropped off quite a bit of donated supplies from students ranging from towels to food to cat litter.  Kirsty said continued public support, donations and volunteers are always welcome.  Ms. Emily was happy to report that due to our fundraiser and educational literature several TLC! families came to volunteer at the humane society.  Later this year TLC! hopes to plan a field trip to the humane society.  We are so proud to connect with this hardworking community partner and hope to continue our support in the years to come!
