After reading a story about giving, second grade students at Troy Shorewood Elementary School decided to collect coins to help the Will County Humane Society in Shorewood.
Little by little, they amassed $145 for the no-kill shelter and gave representatives the check in Michelle McCabe’s classroom in December.
In turn, shelter representatives Malorie Ernest and Liz Christensen visited the second graders. They thanked them for the donation, explained the adoption process and discussed what items are best to donate: food, litter, blankets, beds, office supplies and monetary donations.
Two shelter residents, Elf, a miniature pinscher Chihuahua, and Scout, a beagle, also visited the students. Ernest said the shelter houses about 75 cats and 30 dogs at any given time.
