The Fifth Grade Green Team at Tecumseh Middle School (TMS) recently donated $256 in cash, along with pet food, towels and other products to the Lenawee County Humane Society.

The donation was the combined effort of students in TMS classrooms led by Amy Harrison, Kim Schmidt, and Luanne Grotbeck. Students opted not to exchange gifts in the classrooms and instead raise money for the Lenawee Humane Society.

“We’ve done this for several years and we talk about different projects we could do, but this is usually the one our student like to donate to,” said Harrison.

For every dollar donated, the students got to place a ticket in a drawing. Fifteen names were drawn to be representatives to take the items to the animal shelter on Thursday, Dec. 19.

Some of the students admit to having tender hearts toward this project, including fifth graders Nina O’Neil and Devin Macomber.

“I have two cats and one dog, a rabbit and a fish,” said Nina. Her cats are named Belanka and Bella and her dog is Tucker. “I brought in some stuff that they needed and I was happy that I could help with the animals. It’s so sad when you hear about how people abuse the animals.”

Devin also enjoyed the class project, stating that he had two dogs, named Tank and Abby.

“I also have three ferrets and 16 fish,” he said. “It feels good to help the animals, and this was special because they all need food, even those who are outdoors in the cold.”
