When it comes to supporting animal rescue, few can top the zeal of a group of first-graders in Winnetka. Over one week in April, Miss Marcie Teodoro’s class of 14 first-grade students at the Hubbard Woods Elementary School held a donation drive on behalf of C.A.R.E.
The Donation Drive was held in response to a classroom visit by C.A.R.E. volunteers Laura Andrews and Margaret Sinn-Pong to talk to the students about animal rescue.Read More
