First of all, I want to say thank you Brownie Troup # 11919. They purchased a brick to help Raise the Woof on Jackson County’s first animal shelter! They enjoyed a fun evening watching one of our foster dogs, Rosie, in a training session.
Second, I have a big shout out to Coach Randy Hill’s Senior Leadership class at East Jackson Comprehensive High School. I met Coach Hill at the Foliage Festival in Jefferson. He thought that the Raise the Woof campaign was the perfect project for the senior class service project. After talking with his class, they were really excited and wanted to get started right away. They came up with lots of great ideas on ways to fund raise at the high school. After narrowing it down to a few ideas, they settled on giving out stickers for donations and a raffle basket full of items donated by HSJC, a basket donated by ReTail (the Humane Society’s thrift store), and other goodies collected by the students. They sold raffle tickets and collect donations for three days in the lunchroom and collected $387.05! So many thanks to the EJCHS for helping to “Raise the Woof”!!
