Springfield Freshman Giving Campaign Helps Dakin Humane Society Animals
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Students at Milton Bradley School participate in hands-on projects to learn what it means to be a good citizen.
Students recently had to answer this question:
“How can we, as good citizens, help the animals in our community? »
Starting a donation campaign for the Dakin Humane Society in Springfield was the answer. First graders learned what supplies the shelter needed. Posters and videos were then created to help recover everything. They handed in all their donations on Monday.
22News spoke with the principal to see why it’s important for students to give back to the community. “We just think it’s really important to get our kids out there in the community. Know what services are available here and how they can help and be part of our society,” said Milton Bradley School Principal Kristen Hughes.
Kaitlyn Holloway, Community Engagement Manager for the Dakin Humane Society, adds: “I love seeing young people getting so involved in the community and their compassion for animals really shines through.”
These cleaning and food donations are a huge contribution to the animals in foster care and in-house care. Projects similar to this one will be carried out during the rest of the school year.
