Grade 7 students at Hanna's JC Charyk high school are all about the dogs.
Leadership students Emma Moulton, Emma Nelson, Jade Pahl, Neely Antosh, Tatum McCuaig-Vredegoor, and Elizabeth King decided to fund raise for a great cause.
"Our teacher, Mrs. Campbell, came up to us with the idea of doing a fundraiser for St. John Ambulance Service Dog Foundation," said JC Charyk student Emma Nelson.
The foundation provides assistance through service dogs to those who have been through traumatic events.
The dogs are often used for comfort, companionship, and psychiatric assistance.
"We chose St. John Ambulance Service Dog Foundation because it was a strictly fundraiser based foundation, and they were helping communities all over Alberta. So we thought it was a really good one because we were giving back to people who were giving back to our community." said Nelson.
The students put their heads together and came up with a unique way to raise the funds.
"We decided we were going to do a movie night fundraiser. We all brainstormed and came up with the idea of doing the movie, 'The Secret Life of Pets." explained Nelson. "We had donation boxes and we collected the donations. We also had a concession and that how we made all our money for them."
The students raised $500 for the St. John Ambulance Service Dog Foundation and hope to fund raise for another well deserved cause next year.
