The Grade 3’s at the Minnewasta School had a good idea that grew into something more for local fury friends.
The Grade 3’s held a bake sale and raised $257.65. They were going to donate the monies directly to the Pembina Valley Humane Society (PVHS) but decided to partner with the Morden Area Foundation to create an even larger grant to the PVHS for the much needed new cat and dog beds at the shelter.
Students Mia Brass and Austin Dyck made a presentation to the Morden Area Foundation (MAF) as to why they wanted to donate to the PVHS. The Grade 3’s had gone to a lot of great work learning about non-profits, choosing a local non-profit organization to donate to, making a plan on how to raise monies, and then completing the plan. The MAF Board was so impressed by their work, the Board chose to team up with the Grade 3’s by offering a matching grant for $257. Together the Grade 3’s and the MAF granted $514 to the PVHS.
Congratulations Pembina Valley Humane Society! Thank you for your continued hard work in taking care of Morden and area’s fury friends. And thank you Minnewasta School Grade 3 students for the opportunity to partner with you in the wonderful project.
