South's FBLA collects more than 1,500 items for Humane Society

January 07, 2008

Representatives of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) at South Hagerstown High School collected more than 1,500 items for the Washington County Humane Society as part of the society's annual Home for the Holidays campaign.

FBLA members coordinated an effort among staff and students to solicit toys, treats and nonperishable food items that the Humane Society sends home in a stocking with each animal adopted during the holidays.

"The public schools and South High came through in a big way for the animals and the volunteers at the Humane Society," Katherine Cooker, manager of development and public relations for the Humane Society, said in a prepared release. "This generous contribution of time and effort during a very busy season speaks volumes about how much these students care about their community."

South High students and staff also collected more than $400 for a Halfway-area family whose members were burned out of their home. The donations were turned over to the family to help with short-term needs while they stay with friends.
