It's a last call for donations - but there's still plenty of time to help. A group of Superior Middle School students are collecting donations for the Humane Society of Douglas County and they're asking the public for help with the fundraiser.

Mrs. Lindquist's 8th Grade WIN Group at the school is focusing on community service - what it is, how it benefits others, and how to get involved. They selected this fundraiser for the Humane Society as a worthwhile cause to get behind for their first project.

The 8th Graders are looking for your help in making the fundraiser happen, with your donations. While there are a variety of different items that would be beneficial to the program, they're specifically asking for:

  • Blankets
  • Pet toys
  • Towels
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Monetary donations

The group is focusing their efforts on the month of January. They'll be accepting donations from the public through January 31.

If you'd like to help out, you can drop your donations off at the Main Office of the Superior Middle School:  3626 Hammond Avenue.
