SGHS FCCLA Members Bake & Donate Treats to Animal Shelter

Three members of the Ste. Genevieve High School Chapter of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) baked dog treats and donated them to the local animal shelter. 

Freshmen Alissa Grass, Taylor Armbruster, and Hope Schmelzle chose to support the Ste. Genevieve County Animal Shelter for their STAR Event. The students agreed on baking treats for the dogs at the local animal shelter. They asked Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Barton, who is responsible for the animals in the local shelter, to see if delivering treats during the COVID pandemic would be acceptable.

The three girls got together and baked over three dozen delicious treats for the dogs. The students couldn’t be more excited to deliver these special treats and partake in donating to the Ste. Genevieve County Animal Shelter, because the shelter runs on donations. The FCCLA members were heart warmed to know that the majority of the dogs had a home. 

The organizers would like to give a special thanks to Officer Barton for welcoming the visit and taking wonderful care of the animals.
