From March 4 through March 11, the Latin club collected animal supplies in an effort to support the Wake County SPCA.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (SPCA) serves to protect and provide shelter for animals. Brian Jackson, senior and president of Latin club, said, “We chose the SPCA because it is a really good organization.”
The Wake County SPCA has more than 70 cats and 30 dogs in need.
Jackson explained the club’s motivation to help the shelter, “Latin club is mainly a service-directed club, and we pick several organizations every year to support. The SPCA has received support from Leesville’s Latin club for several years now, so it has become a tradition.”
The Latin Club accepted dog food, cat food, bunny food, newspapers, animal bedding, paper towels and pine-sol.
Jackson cited no specific goal for the entire student body, but said, “Our main goal was to have every member bring in at least one thing.”
