Make It Pawsible

May 28, 2015

The fifth grade classes at a San Jose school organized a fund raiser as a class project utilizing the skills they had learned. They researched Canine Companions; organized a student assembly with graduate team and puppy raiser speakers as well as student led presentations to each classroom and to parents at an open house; and designed a website for online donations. Their fund raiser was called Make It Pawsible and it raised $5,000 in three weeks which they decided to use to help sponsor DogFest Silicon Valley. This sponsorship will fund training workshops for puppy raisers. We were very impressed by the students' commitment and efforts to support Canine Companions for Independence.
