Hats for hounds

Megan Shultz
Posters will be put up around the school as a reminder to support the Humane Society.

During the week of Jan. 22, the Girls’ League will host a fundraiser in an attempt to raise money for local Humane Societies. To participate, students must bring in $1.00 to the tables set up in the hallways during lunch. Once the students donate, they will receive a paw to display in their lanyard, which serves as a “ticket” to wear a hat in school on Wednesday, Jan. 24. 

“I am excited for the opportunity to raise money for the local humane societies,” Girls’ League adviser Megan Yingling said. “Especially since they have had such an influx of dogs over the past few weeks.” 

Along with a dollar, students can bring in 4health dog food, soft treats, 33-gallon trash bags, clumping cat litter, Purina natural cat food and Odoban. While donating is not required, it would be greatly appreciated.

Megan Shultz, Associate Editor
My name is Megan Shultz, and I am an associate editor on the Mt. Echo staff. Ever since I was young I would spend my free time writing stories for my family. Now, entering my senior year, I still get excited to show them my work. When I'm not reading or writing, I love to dance and hangout with my friends. Once I graduate, I hope to attend Mount Aloysius for their sonography program. Until then, I'm looking forward to my senior year and the awesome memories I will make.
