Leihoku Elementary School students donate supplies to Oahu SPCA | Pets
Leihoku Elementary School students visited the Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) on Jan. 19 as part of its student leader service learning project, which aims to raise awareness along the Waianae coast for abused animals.
The project, which began last fall, educates students about important animal issues.
Students earned money to purchase donations through various fundraisers including wrapping presents at Borders, selling baked goods, recycling and holding garage sales.
For the next phase of the project, students needed to purchase the donations. This gave students the opportunity to practice math and accounting skills.
The final stage of the project included a field trip to the shelter. There, students dropped off their donations and toured the facility. Students were also allowed to invite a friend to help raise awareness of animal abuse in the community.
The students donated supplies including blankets, paper towels, bleach, toys and dog treats. The students also gave the facility a cash donation amounting to $1,336. 31.
