Builders Club raises funds for animal shelter

The Independence Middle School Builders Club recently hosted a fundraiser called “Paws for a Cause,” with all benefits going to the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter. The club made homemade dog treats to sell at lunch, along with Scooby snacks, stickers and an opportunity for students to give their pet a special shout out on the morning announcements. The club raised $125 and was proud to have Deputy Dog Warden Michelle Brown from the shelter in the school’s WIMS studios to accept the funds, talk about the shelter and thank the student body. Ellie, a dog currently up for adoption, also joined and was a hit among students. ∞
