Eisenhower Middle School Raises $1,800 for St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center
ROXBURY Eisenhower Middle School students and teachers raised $1,800 for St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center as part of a school-wide effort to make a difference in the lives of pets in the Garden State.
On Friday, June 20, students and teachers who participated in the effort presented the $1,800 check to American Animal Hospital veterinarian Dr. Brian Voynick, who is part of St. Hubert’s fundraising team and serves on the board of St. Hubert’s.
“Thank you to Eisenhower Middle School for their Walk-Jog-Run school event, which raised $1,800. St. Hubert’s cares for animals in shelters, rehabilitating pets who have lived in mills, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for our furry friends who would otherwise have no voice. With contributions like this, it keeps our efforts moving forward,” said Voynick.
Voynick and American Animal Hospital personally matched the EMS donation with an additional $700 for a total of $2500 overall that will be donated.
“We are really proud of our students and what we accomplished. EMS is a great place to work because we have an atmosphere of cooperation and teamwork. Anything is people when people work in teams. We want to also thank the families and members of team 7-1, as well as our staff who contributed,” said Cindy Hubbard, event organizer and English teacher at Eisenhower Middle School. “It was a student-led effort along with our teachers who also led them. Everybody did something.”
