The Kingston Elementary 3rd graders held a community service project by having a fundraiser for a local animal shelter. This fundraiser was called “Pennies for Pets”. Their goal was to raise $500 to donate to the animal shelter and they exceeded their goal by raising a total of $764.

The animal shelter is a no-kill shelter meaning that it is an organization that doesn’t kill healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is at its maximum capacity.

The students presented their donations to the shelter on Wednesday, February 14.
