Some of you know that I am involved with our local TNR (trap, neuter, return) group, Derry Township Community Cats. (And no, that’s not in Ireland…I wish! We are in Pennsylvania.) I was foolish enough to take on being President of our little band for a bit, and along with all the yucky stuff comes some really neat stuff that I get to do.
Recently one of our leadership team suggested that our group might enjoy being the recipient of our township school’s third grade project. They have the Penny Wars each year, and all the third grade classes compete on collecting change, which is then donated to charity. Well, they decided we would be one of the charities this year, and I went with another board member to the assembly to accept the check.
We were expecting a check for $20 or something, enough for a rabies shot. We were more than a little shocked, surprised and grateful for the check they presented us. How many rabies shots do you think we can buy with this?
The third grade classes of the Derry Township School District rock!! And they give me all sorts of hope for the kids who will be the caretakers of the homeless animals tomorrow.
