During the long winter months, many need support. Our community lends a helping hand out to those that need extra food around the holidays, shelter in the chilly weather, and even hats and gloves for children in the cold.
Leah Hardenburg, a second grade student, thought there was someone being left out of the mix. She wanted to be sure Lower Providence was supporting its four-legged friends, as well.
Hardenburg is taking up a collection for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for a community service project. She is collecting items at Woodland Elementary School. Items can be brought into the school's front office from 9:05 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Those wishing to donate are running out of time. The boxes will only remain until Feb. 1.
The collection boxes will be in the lobby for the following items:
- dry cat and dog food
- small cat toys only
- fleece blankets (no sheets please)
"Thank you for your support in helping Leah make this a successful community project," noted an electronic alert from Methacton School District.
Donations will be supporting the Montgomery County SPCA. According to its website, the MCSPCA, which was established in 1909 and chartered in 1916, has three locations including Conshohocken, Perkiomenville and Abington shelters.
