Early Childhood Education student, Jewel Seery, is currently in the process of collecting donations in accordance with a service–based project she is required to do for her ED-2216 Family School and Community course.
Seery is requesting that all donations be delivered to Room 301 in Oakley Hall by April 19.
In addition, Seery will get assistance delivering her donations from students from Sheltering Arms Preschool in Lancaster, Ohio. Her goal in getting the students involved is to “teach them about the importance of volunteering, and to show them how the donations and supplies will be used.”
Some of the supplies Seery is hoping to collect for the animals at both shelters include the following items:
- Purina Dog Chow (Green Bag)
- Purine Cat Chow Complete (Blue Bag)
- Canned dog food
- Canned cat food
- Cat litter
- Dog/cat toys
In addition, both shelters need the following cleaning supplies:
- Bleach spray
- Paper towels
- Disinfecting spray (Glade, Febreze, Air Wick)
- Disinfecting wipes
- Glass cleaner
- Old newspapers
- Toilet paper
- Gallon size ZipLoc storage bags
- Isopropyl alcohol
- Hoses 50/100 ft.
- Scrub brushes
- Brillo pads
Some of the other supplies both shelters need include postage stamps, printer paper, and batteries.
According to Seery’s instructor, Susan Dietz, the purpose of this project is to illustrate "how service learning allows Hocking (College) Early Childhood Education students to better understand the community that surrounds us."
