Arriving in several trucks and cars loaded down with supplies, students from Pace High School’s National Honor Society and Beta Clubs donated nearly 4000 pounds of cat food, cat litter, dog food and blankets to Santa Rosa Animal Services on Thursday, March 10.
The supply drive was the February 2016 project for the students including: Cody Bowes, Alexis Fonacier, Adarius Lampkins, Claire Browning, Hannah Westrick, Leland Knoch, Emma Bowland, Brett Birmingham, Blake Russell, Tony Marcantonio, Alissa Gibson, Carlee Harding, Grace Javier, Carlee Smith, Amanda Strickland and Evan Rowell, lead by sponsors Lisa Dillashaw and Katherine Byers.
“We’re very grateful for the members and sponsors of Pace High School’s National Honor Society and Beta Club,” said Dale Hamilton, Santa Rosa County Animal Services director. “We go through an incredible amount of food and supplies each week and their donation will go a long way towards helping us keep overhead costs down and providing a comfortable life for the animals in our care.”
