Students and families from two local schools have been collecting a variety of donations for The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Angie McLean is the PTSA president at Catonsville Middle and is helping guide this effort involving children from Catonsville Middle and Hillcrest Elementary schools.
They’ve been working throughout December and have collected about six vans full of blankets, toys, dog and cat treats and food to give to The SPCA Maryland, located on Falls Road, McLean said.
The idea for the project came from McLean’s family. The project was so successful that they’re looking to do it again in the spring, possibly when the weather warms up in April or May, she said.
“People were happy to do it,” McLean said. “The kids did it. It was an entirely student-driven event, and we were very happy with how it ended up."
McLean said she was very happy with how kids and families from two schools connected to do something to help many animals.
