BANGOR---During “Service Week” at All Saints Catholic School’s Summer Program, the children learned the importance of giving back to those in need, including furry friends looking for warmth and care.
In addition to working in a community garden, making stress balls for faculty, and completing several other projects, the children cut and braided nearly 20 fleece dog toys by hand and collected additional supplies for residents at the Bangor Humane Society. On August 18, members of the program dropped off the toys and supplies at the facility. The Bangor Humane Society serves over 200 communities in northern and eastern Maine, striving to assist homeless pets by locating new owners and loving homes.
During the school year, students at All Saints participate in countless community service activities, providing a great foundation for a lifetime of giving. The summer program reinforces that important message.
“Volunteering time is priceless,” said Kate Bielinski, the director of advancement at All Saints. “We are glad to have the opportunity to share that with our students and summer program participants as well.”
