A plaque with the names of Special Tree clients from the Community Living Skills (CLS) group at NCC now hangs on a very special cage at the Huron Valley Humane Society. Over the next six months, the animals that make this cage their temporary home will have good food, a soft blanket, and special treats, thanks to a generous donation from the CLS group. Since January, clients Bret, Clara, Tim, Jim, Marv, and John, worked with facilitators Nicole, Kristin, and students Lauren and Courtney to raise the $300 needed to sponsor a cage at the shelter through bake sales and bottle drives. The group was so excited to reach their fundraising goal, and celebrated by going to the shelter on October 12th to personally presented a $300 check. In addition to the money, the clients also donated three large boxes of food, bedding, and toys which they collected from staff, friends, and family. A special thanks to everyone who participated in the fundraisers and donated items!
