The class delivered donations collected by the school during the whole month of August. Humane society volunteer Kelly Eckerle of Jasper gave the class a tour after dropping off their donations. "It's really special," she said. "My mom used to drop me off here to volunteer as a ten-year-old. It's super important to me that kids learn community activism at that age."
