Honor Society Donation

Last Updated on May 12, 2015 at 11:40am | Public Information Office

The Foster D. Bittle Chapter of the National Honor Society at Southern Garrett High School conducted a charity drive for the Garrett County Animal Shelter to commemorate its 50th Induction class.  Over 44 staff members from the high school and newly inducted members of the National Honor Society donated over $300 toward the purchase of food, leashes, treats, and toys for the cats and dogs at the shelter. Many more donations were brought in Sunday during the National Honor Society Induction Ceremony.
 
"It was heartwarming to see this generosity from students, staff, and parents to a cause that is very dear to one of our teachers, Mrs. Maria Zumpano.  With the help of senior Sarah Hutton, Mrs. Zumpano rallied the teachers and students to help those who can't help themselves," National Honor Society advisor Heather Savage said.  "The shelter is in full kitten season right now, and we know the donations will be put to use right away. Families looking for a furry addition should stop by the shelter and meet the kittens available for adoption."
