Five Deer Creek Prairie Vale Elementary School students gave more than $400 to Free to Live Animal Sanctuary this week.
Katie Elcyzyn, Hallie Hinton, Lexi Heiden, Alex Jury and Camryn Lockhart sold tie-dyed T-shirts, key chains, drinks and other items on Aug. 16 and 17 at a stand in the Southerly Farms Housing addition. During their time there, the girls earned $437 which they presented to Free to Live representatives Thursday.
The girls also volunteered at Free to Live on Aug. 16 to help exercise and socialize the animals. Free to Live accepts volunteers every first and third Saturday to help with the animals. One of the girls’ mothers said in an e-mail that the girls had a lot of fun with their fundraiser and learned about making a difference in the community.
Here’s hoping there are more people out there like these girls who want to help.
