Students in Special Education teacher Susan DeJohn’s classroom at Brockport High School love to give back to others in the community. This year, they learned about the work being done at the Willow Domestic Violence Center in Rochester. When they heard that many abuse survivors and their children arrive at the Center with their frightened cats or dogs, they were determined to help make the shelter a welcoming, warm place for these furry family members.
With generously donated materials and help from staff members, the students made soft, comforting blankets for pets. Their caring gifts will make all the difference for many during the holidays and beyond.
