Hurricane Katrina caused devastation when it hit Mississippi and Louisiana last summer. In what seemed like moments, complete towns were destroyed, leaving families homeless. Beloved pets were also displaced. Many of these animals are being rescued and brought to local animal shelters. Animal shelters are also seeing a decrease in the amount of donations, as more people are donating to the hurricane effort. As a result, these shelters could use donations of money and supplies.

As part of the third grade Social Studies curriculum in SAD 6, students discuss what it means to be a responsible citizen and ways they can help their community. This year the third graders at Edna Libby Elementary School have decided to collect items to donate to local animal shelters. From Jan. 20 to Feb. 17, students are collecting items the shelters need. Students will then present the items to a representative from the shelter.
