We are so amazed by these local students! Last week, they (Division 5 Black Bears at Ecole Poirier) ran a yard sale at the school to raise money for the BC SPCA. They raised $381.95. This week they decided how they wanted to donate the money. They decided to donate to our local BC SPCA locations and give half to Wild Arc and half to the Victoria BC SPCA shelter.
Doing this in support of the BC SPCA was entirely their idea and they ran it. They chose to do this after they participated in a BC SPCA You Can Make A Difference educational opportunity. Needless to say, they were inspired. Their teacher, Leanne Gates says "As their teacher, all I did was help facilitate. I am so proud of how well they worked together to make this happen and how much compassion they have for animals." ❤️
They have plans to run another fundraiser for the BC SPCA in June.
Thank you so much for your generosity and hard work to make a difference in the lives of local animals!
