The John Marshall High School National Honor Society, along with performing community service for more than 30 different events this year, decided to spend the year helping the Marshall County Animal Shelter.
During the first semester, the group created and sold the 2019 John Marshall High School Pet Calendar, with all proceeds going to the shelter. This earned the shelter $757.68. Sara Woods was the NHS chair of the calendar committee.
“The students enjoyed a friendly competition among their pets and raised money by nominating their favorites and then purchasing the calendars we made. This helped provide some necessary supplies to the animal shelter to care for their dogs and cats while they were waiting to be adopted,” said Sara Woods, National Honor Society Chairperson of the Calendar Committee.
On Sunday, May 5, 2019, NHS held an Adoption Day where the Marshall County Animal Shelter brought five dogs in need of adoption. Two of the five dogs were adopted as a result of the event. NHS members asked local businesses to help sponsor the adoption event and also raffled three baskets during the event. The raffle raised an additional $780.31. Gabby Broski was the chair of the adoption event.
“We couldn’t have done the adoption event without the generous monetary donations from our sponsors,” said Gabby Broski, National Honor Society Chairperson of the Adoption Committee. “We are happy to announce that two of the five dogs at the event have already been adopted.”
The following donated toward the Adoption event: Frohnapfel and Burkett Nationwide, Insurance Main Street Bank and Lisa Zukoff donated $100. Fifty dollar sponsors included Chey-Nans, Community Bank, Happy Tails Pet Salon, Paw Spa, Rumor Has It, Snyder Limousin Farm and Two Chicks Custom Design. Glen Dale Marshals 4-H Club, McCoy Insurance Agency and Wood Scraps, LLC each donated $25.00 to the event.
