Students at Jim Stone Elementary are working together to help take care of pets in our community.
So an extra-special, extra-large furry friend visited their school today to help them kick off the Pet Supply Drive.
Clifford the Big Red dog made an appearance at their monthly character assembly Friday afternoon.
He wanted to encourage the kids in their service project.
Kindergarten students and teachers are heading up the Pet Supply Drive as their community service project.
“Kindergartners like pets so we chose this project so they could get excited about it," says teacher Kimberly Browning. "It’s important for them to give back."
Her students are ready to help.
“It’s important so dogs can eat and have food,” Grace said.
“They need food just like people need food,” Paisley said.
"...or they might die."Jackson added.
Students are collecting pet food and supplies for ArkanPAWS this next month. Donations can be taken to the front office at Jim Stone Elementary.
