Students at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo made a generous gift to the Friends of Oakland Animal Shelter(FOAS) on Sunday. A gift of $426.23, to be exact. The students decided to raise money for FOAS because one student’s family had adopted an animal from us several years ago, and it was now a beloved family pet. By asking for a donation for the buttons shown in the picture below, the girls not only raised money for the shelter, but also educated their fellow students about animal cruelty by handing out a fact sheet that accompanied the button.
We are so thankful for the effort and generosity of these students.
