Palms West Charter Students Support ‘Project Pooch’

At Palms West Charter School, empathy and altruism extend beyond human needs. The Engaged Service classes selected a community need, then planned and implemented a project to benefit dogs in the community. “Project Pooch” successfully created more than 100 student-made dog chew toys from old clothing and materials to support animal care facilities during the financial hardships caused by the pandemic. The delivery of these toys was sincerely welcomed and appreciated by such facilities as Big Dog Ranch Rescue, which is shown here.
