Panthers for Pets

Paschal Panthers for Pets is organizing an item collection the week of March 24:

  • March 25 newspapers
  • March 26 pennies (we will have students coming to your rooms and collect coins... we have done this before and we were able to collect lots of $)
  • March 27 gently used towels/blankets
  • March 28 dog and cat food, treats, toys, leashes, bowls, beds, puppy pads, cleaning supplies

All the items can be left in the front foyer (or room 202 if you want to contribute now) with Mrs. Parker. Because we dream big, we are trying to help four organizations this time: Fort Worth Animal Shelter, The Humane Society, Apollo Support and REscue Group, and Don't forget to feed me.
