Chowhound House Food Bank

My students need 3 iPad minis and cases and doggie waste bags to supply their mission of providing a better environment for the residents and their pets.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students are highly motivated and excited to help the city environment by supplying residents with pet food and resources to allow residents to keep their pet with them during economic recession.

Students come from all over the city to attend this medical magnet school.

Many will attend college in a medical profession. These students created Chowhound House, which is a food bank for animals. Every month they have distribution days where they provide free pet food for residents, free immunization so for their pets, free spay/ neutering programs and resources on pet care( shampoos, brushes, collars and leashes) Our city had the highest rate of homeless and abused animals in the state. The students felt that helping the residents, by supplying pet needs will help them financially and keep the pet in the household, rather then on the streets. They also realize this is better for the pet and the environment.

My Project

The 3 iPad minis and the covers will allow students to keep up on communications with partners, create lists and quick access to emails for distribution day reminders for residents. The doggie waste bags are necessary for the day of events for quick easy access for clean ups.

My students are making a big difference in their city and helping the future environment in which they reside.

They need these tools to continue their good deeds that has a great impact on the cities environment.
