SLATE HILL, NY — Minisink Valley Intermediate Kiwanis K-Kids, mentored by advisor Mary Jo Wagner, once again came through for pets at the Humane Society of Port Jervis/Deerpark, delivering a carload of food, toys, blankets and beds and a check for $306.36 to benefit the animals at the shelter. The K-Kids club, made up of third-, fourth- and fifth-graders from the Minisink Valley Intermediate School, participates in service projects all year long. The shelter donations were collected by the kids from students at their school. This is just one of their many efforts to serve the community in which they live.

While at the shelter, the kids and their advisors and parents took some time to visit with and provide toys and treats for the shelter’s cats, dogs and rabbits.

“What an awesome group of kids to collect these donations for our shelter pets,” said shelter director Susan Beecher. “Their enthusiasm was infectious and their interest in and compassion for the animals touched our hearts.”
