The Benefit

Here is how the project went:

One semester of our club participants raised $1400 to create the kits. The next semester's participants created and delivered the kits to our clients.

Through this project I/we learned:

Students learned the value of a long term project through fundraising efforts and delayed delivery of kits.

What I/we might change:

We would change the number of clients we delivered to. We delivered to all 200 clients from our Pet Care Assistance program, but less than half that number are current, active clients. So some phone numbers and addresses were outdated.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

My favorite part of this project was the amount of students that were able to be involved since it spanned two semesters.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

Our clients were so thankful to receive these kits and to know we care about protecting their pets.
