Sixth-grader amazes dog shelter with donations

He raised $73, wagon loads of supplies, dog food, a kennel, peanut butter, treats and other supplies.

Maura K. White, development officer for Clackamas County Dog Services, was amazed when he just came by the shelter last week with the donations.

“For us, it is wonderful when students and their parents learn more about resources in their own backyard,” White said. “Although middle-age students are too young to volunteer in the center, they are never to young to run a supportive campaign like Jaedan did.”

White also thought it was great that Shelly Lute, leadership teacher at the middle school, encourages students participate in community service projects as part of their learning objectives.
