Middle School Service Project
On Saturday morning, May 20th, a group of middle-schoolers (Janice Chen, Drew McNeal, Elizabeth Yoo, Angela Yang, Jasmine Liu, Vanita Shih, and Andre Joubert) participated in the middle school service learning project at Gou Gou Shan Animal Shelter. They spent the morning working hard doing a variety of necessary jobs. They cleaned and refilled many water buckets, cleaned over 50 food bowls, and then filled and distributed food for about half the 150 dogs at the shelter. Dogs were brushed, walked, and given lots of attention and ear scratches! Giant bags of food were carried to distribution points and boxes were moved to where they needed to be put. The students worked hard and their efforts were greatly appreciated by Surbrina, the owner. Finishing off the event, Drew McNeal, President of MS STUGO, presented her with $20,000 NTD that MS students had collected to help with veterinary expenses. This was a great and worthwhile experience, and we look forward to being able to return next year.
