The Kitimat Humane Society is thrilled to announce that it has received a generous donation of $140 from the Grade 6 classes of Kildala School. The donation was made as a result of an inspiring initiative undertaken by the students during their recent Entrepreneur Fair.

The Entrepreneur Fair, organized by the Grade 6 classes, provided an opportunity for the students to showcase their creativity and business acumen. The fair featured a wide array of handmade crafts, including bracelets, necklaces, rocks, dog treats, dog toys, and other various crafts. The students poured their hearts and souls into creating these unique items, and their hard work paid off.

Maryann, the shelter manager of the Kitimat Humane Society, and Devin, the Humane Society president, were invited to the school to receive a cheque. Accompanied by Winnie the 6 month old shepherd rottie cross, they received a warm welcome from the enthusiastic students. Maryann and Devin graciously accepted the students' generous donation and expressed their heartfelt appreciation for their compassion and dedication.

In addition to presenting the donation, Maryann and Devin took the time to answer questions from the students about the humane society's mission, their work in caring for animals, and the importance of responsible pet ownership. The interaction between the students and the representatives of the Kitimat Humane Society was educational, inspiring, and left a lasting impact on all involved.

"We are immensely grateful to the Grade 6 classes of Kildala School for their remarkable efforts in organizing the Entrepreneur Fair and their incredible donation to the Kitimat Humane Society," said Maryann. "Their dedication and compassion are truly commendable, and their contribution will directly support our ongoing efforts to provide a safe and loving environment for animals in need."

Devin, the Humane Society president, added, "The students' initiative not only raised vital funds but also created awareness about the welfare of animals within our community. Their commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of our furry friends is truly inspiring."

The Kitimat Humane Society extends its deepest gratitude to the Grade 6 classes of Kildala School, their teachers, and all those who supported the Entrepreneur Fair. This generous donation will have a profound impact on the welfare and well-being of animals in the community.
