This Christmas season the staff at McDowell County BOE participated in Pennies for Pups; all proceeds went to the McDowell County Humane Society. We were also able to collect dog and cat food, along with supplies for the animals. With all the donations, we raised over $100!

This is something we love doing and hope that we can continue in the coming years.
