Girls on the Run Team Charity Drive for Animal Shelter
Our University School Girls on the Run team is choosing the Washington County Animal Shelter as the focus for their charity this season.  We will be collecting new or gently used blankets, chew toys, or chew bones for the animals.  You can bring these donations to school and place them in our box located outside the front office.  We hope you are able to help us make this winter season a little brighter for these animals.   Thanks for your support!
