Sunview Elementary students, under the guidance and mentorship of Kim Irwin, culminated the hard work and dedication of a number of individuals by presenting a check for $1,000 to local help agency, Marilyn’s Voice on Thursday, December 19, 2019. Sunview third graders contributed to the donation by selling homemade products for people and pets during lunchtime on December 9th-13th 2019. The list of homemade items included single and double fringed scarves, as well as gifts for four legged friends such as braided pull toys, pet scarves and cat teasers. Students began meeting every Wednesday starting in September to create the homemade products. As a gesture of appreciation for the donation, representatives from Marilyn’s Voice treated Mrs. Irwin’s classroom to a pizza lunch and brought along a few dogs helped by the non-profit for students to meet and play with. Marilyn’s Voice is a local, volunteer-based operation that helps to provide dollars for veterinarian fees, treatment and other medical bills for animals. Their mission is essentially to rescue and rehabilitate dogs that have suffered from abuse and neglect that often occur at puppy mills or that have become unclaimed at animal shelters. Thank you to the students and staff at Sunview Elementary for their generous support of Marilyn’s Voice and its mission of helping dogs in need.
