Paper Towel Drive 2014
This week November 3rd through November 7th, you can start bringing paper towels! It's our annual Paper Towel Drive for the Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center!We have a goal of 1.000 roll for this years drive.Last year,our paper towel drive brought forth 692 rolls! The RWRC uses the paper towels in the cleaning and preparation stages when taking care of the hundreds of birds they rehabilitate at their facility. Our annual drive usually supplies the RWRC for an entire year! This wonderful organization has helped save many of our own wild birds (and even cottontail bunnies) found here on our own school grounds. Thank you for your never-ending support and generosity.
