Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue was invited to the Red Lake Elementary School on Wednesday, March 5th to accept the generous donation of the children’s 2014 penny drive as a part of their Kindness Week activities. Teacher Michelle Stapleton coordinates this event each year and the students have picked the animal shelter as their favorite charity.
Karen, Bubba the Bulldog and Mouser went to the student assembly and accepted the proceeds of 60,000 pennies collected. Sanford Health also matched $250.00 of the donation, so Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue received a total of $850.00.
The antidote for cruelty is kindness, and the elementary children and staff provided exactly that. We are so thankful to be reminded of all the kind people that care about their animals here at Red Lake.
A big thank you to the Red Lake Elementary School from Red Lake Rosie’s Board of Directors Jo, Polly, Carol, Karen, and our furry friends Bubba and Mouser.
Both Mouser and Bubba were big hits with the kids.
