Service Learning Project
I chose the Genesee County Humane Society (GCHS), it is a non-profit organization that specializes in taking stray and/or abandoned animals, giving them a safe, warm place to stay until a family or individual can adopt them. They have been around for 20+ years, and strive off donations from the public. In short, their mission is to provide shelter and adoption of companion animals, reduce overpopulation, extend humane education, prevent cruelty, and provide those services that promote its goals and policies. Although, the GCHS recieves plenty of donations which includes hard dry food, blankets, toys etc. The real need for the animals at GCHS are cans of wet food for dogs and cats, hard rubber toys that keep the bigger dogs busy while waiting for adoption. My proposal is to have a food drive, printing up flyers and handing them out to the public so they can bring their donations to the GCHS where I will have a table and donate my time to raise the needs for these animals.
