The Los Alamos County Animal Shelter has accepted a great deal of donations from the Los Alamos Online Learning Academy 2nd  grade class.  Teacher Kati Steinberg asked the students what they could do to make the world a better place and they decided they wanted to help the animal shelter.

Donations were collected throughout the month of November and included bags of food, treats, toys and $750.  The donations were dropped off by Ms Steinberg and students Daisy McCullough and Felix Fellenz on behalf of the 2nd grade class. The students presented the donations to Animal Shelter Manager Paul Sena and LAPD Sgt. Daniel Roberts. Chief of Police Dino Sgambellone stated he was impressed by the amount of donations the class was able to gather and knows this kind act will help grow a stronger community for animals. 

The Los Alamos Police Department was very thankful for the donations and appreciated the “thank you” card the class wrote for the officers.
