Amherst Elementary teacher Mrs. Finn and her fourth grade reading students recently worked on a special project to support the Stark County Humane Society.

Their program “People for Paws” requested the donation of numerous items that the sheltered needed for its animals such as canned and dry animal food, leashes, brooms, dog dishes, cat formula and more.

As of Dec. 17, the final collection day, donations totaled more than 430 items and over $100 in monetary support.
