Stu­dents of Sharon Walker’s 4/5 split class of Green­tree Ele­men­tary School paid a visit to The Drumheller and District Hu­mane So­ci­ety on Tues­day, June 29 to drop off some well needed sup­plies. The class has been fundrais­ing all year by hold­ing bake sales. Teacher Sharon Walker ex­plains that the class was par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy Foun­da­tions pro­gram. The pro­gram en­cour­ages stu­dents to plan, cre­ate, ap­praise and com­mu­ni­cate a cer­tain project. The class chose the Hu­mane So­ci­ety and raised $400 in sup­plies for the So­ci­ety. In to­tal, the chil­dren brought with them 5 bags of cat food, 10 tubs of clump­ing kitty lit­ter, 2 large con­tain­ers of laun­dry de­ter­gent, 2 con­tain­ers of bleach, and 5 pack­ages of treats to the Hu­mane So­ci­ety. Mem­ber of the Hu­mane So­ci­ety, Deb Busse, toured the class around so the chil­dren could see how their do­na­tion was go­ing to help. “We were in des­per­ate need of kitty lit­ter. It is a big job to feed and make sure all cats are taken care of. We have 48 cats here with us now and this do­na­tion meant a lot to us,” says Busse.
