The students, whose after school program is offered at Powell Elementary School, learned that the shelter uses lots and lots of towels every day and can always use more. So, they appealed to local hotels and asked for their discarded, but usable linens and collected 15 bags of towels for the shelter!
In addition, the students understood that better communication is needed so that folks in the community not only know how to properly care for animals, but where to report animal control issues and incidents of animal abuse and neglect. The students' flyer, Saving and Caring for Animals, was handed out to other soccer teams.
Thank you DC Scores students at Powell Elementary School!
