Room 20's Community Service Project
Our class wants to help animals that don't have a home, or have been abused or neglected in their lifetime. We are collecting donations to bring to the Burlington County Animal Shelter in Mount Laurel on December 16, 2016. Our students will be making special treats to bring to the animals, but any donation will be appreciated. Some wishlist items include: dry and canned dog and cat food, dog and cat toys and treats, hot dogs, peanut butter, blankets, paper towels, and dryer sheets.
More information will be coming home with our students.
