Fourth graders at Lafayette Elementary School in Washington, D.C. did some quick calculating and learned that caring for an animal companion can be costly. They want to make sure that every cat and dog has plenty to eat this holiday season and beyond. They also learned that the Washington Animal Rescue League's Rescuers' Food Bank helps people care for their cats and dogs. Income qualified guardians apply for food assistance and then are eligible to pick up cans or bags of food every month. Food in the Rescuers' Food Bank is donated to the League by generous patrons -- like those in the Lafayette Elementary School community. The food drive is an all-school effort; the school's artistic security guard Officer Nicholson, created the drop-off boxes and Cozy Girl, a WARL alum and companion to school psychologist Harriet Kuhn, eagerly to lent her "Please feed my friends" pose in front of glittery donation box for a promotional photo. Food will be collected between now and December 21st.
