Santiago Elementary’s RAK Club Shows Kindness to Needy Animals
Santiago Elementary School’s Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Club, which is comprised of 30 5th grade scholars, can celebrate the success of their most recent project – “A Cause for Paws.”
Each trimester, the RAK Club ambassadors vote on a community service project to promote school-wide that will help all the students, parents and staff at Santiago practice kindness. This trimester, they organized “A Cause for Paws” to collect items needed by the Orange County Animal Shelter.
Collecting the items was just one part of the project. On Friday, February 6, 2015, 22 RAK Ambassadors and 10 middle school leadership students from Santiago traveled to the Orange County Animal Shelter with some of their parents to deliver dog food, hundreds of dog treats, toys, and supplies.
While dropping off the donated items, students and parents took a guided tour of the facility to learn how their kindness project will affect all the needy animals at the shelter.
