Presents for Paws project
The Treasure Mountain Junior High leadership class is asking for donations to support its Presents for Paws project that helps families in need who own pets. According to a press release, donations needed include vet certificates, pet food, treats, beds, collars and leashes. The students will deliver the items to the Christian Center of Park City, which has a pet food pantry. Donated items can be taken to Treasure Mountain Junior High.
"The students recognize that having pets are big parts of most families’ lives, and keeping them in their own home can be challenging for a low-income family," the release states.
