PAW Club held a fundraiser Oct. 16-19, benefiting KC Pet Project. KC Pet Project is a nonprofit charitable organization in Kansas City, Missouri. They focus on animal welfare through a number of outlets. Students donated an item or gave $2 to the drive and received a dress down Oct. 19.

Junior and PAW Club officer, Aleksandra Blair monitored the drive for PAW Club’s mission. They stand for promoting animal welfare.

“The drive was a simple yet really helpful way to give back to the community that tied in with the ‘mission’ of our club,” Blair said.

This is the first year PAW Club has held this drive.

“In the past, we’ve usually done a fundraiser where we’ve gotten dogs for people to play with during finals week,” Blair said.

Seniors Gabby Martinez and Claire Witt are both on the youth board at KCPP. They got in contact with Blair and junior PAW Club officer Lauren Ennis.

“Gabby and Claire gave us details on what was needed,” Blair said. “It was really cool because this was a really great opportunity we’d been looking for that kinda just landed in our laps.”
