It’s a day to give back and remember.
To honor those lost on 9/11, Iroquois School District held its 2nd Annual Day of Service. Students gathered to do community service at different locations throughout Erie County.
The goal is to teach students about the significance of this date in history.
Students who volunteered at the Humane Society made dog treats, learned about enrichment for animals, and how to be responsible pet owners.
Executive Director of the Humane Society of NWPA, Nicole Bawol, says, “The significance of the day, 9/11, we should remember to be philanthropists and that we are philanthropists. “
Kayle Shute, a senior at Iroquois High School, tells us, “I think it’s amazing because you get to see how much you can make a difference just by doing little tasks for anyone and everyone. “
20 students volunteered at the Humane Society.
