The Wilcox Elementary Student Council
The Wilcox Elementary Student council had a passion to help animals and chose to help the homeless animals at ICAC with their project to raise funds and buy much needed items for the shelter dogs and cats. The council members did a fundraiser and brought in toys and treats donated for the animals and in addition to that they they raised $145 for the shelter's Animal Care Fund which is dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for animals while staying at the shelter. 

Students took a tour of the facility with Volunteer Jackie Gates.

St. James Catholic Church Confirmation Community Service Project
St JamesA big thank you to Alejandro, Charlie, Adam, & Nick who completed their Community Service Project as part of their Confirmation at St. James Catholic Church.  

Each one of these young men took it upon themselves to collaborate with their parents, fellow students, and the community at large, to gather over $500 in pet supplies, food, and shelter necessities.  In addition, while discussing this project with ICAC staff they completed "time and effort" for the shelter itself.  They created new, folding "sandwich" signs that would most benefit the ICAC's Mobile adoption events, but needed to be built.  In May, Alejandro, Charlie, Adam, and Nick (along with their sponsors) spent the day, designing, painting, and assembling these signs in addition to inventoring and packaging their pet supply donation.  They said “It was our pleasure to be able to donate these items and the signs to ICAC, and only hope that they will help some unfortunate animals find new homes or make their temporary stay at the shelter, as comfortable as possible.”
