ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Help Local Animals

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) –  Fourteen eighth grade Students from Duggan Middle School in Springfield held a fundraiser for the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Center and Adoption Center. Students from the school were invited for a special tour of the center as they presented their donation of five hundred dollars.

Students set up centers at Pet Stores throughout the city and held a bake sale to raise the money for T.J.O. Their teacher says this community service project helps the students understand the responsibility of raising a pet, and treating them humanely.
