Second graders help rescue animals
CREATED Feb. 18, 2013
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Second graders at The Meadows School are learning about sales and marketing and making Las Vegas a better place to live.
The students at The Meadows School are gearing up for their big bake sale. The yummiest item Sean is selling at his sports themed booth? "These cookies."
Each of these kids had to develop a business plan and market their goodies in speeches to the other students. But there's an important reason they're doing this. Jordyn explains, "I want all the animals to find homes and find stuff they need."
These students recently visited the animals at the Nevada Soecity for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and saw firsthand how many pets need homes. Today's proceeds will go to the no-kill shelter.
Juli told us, "I thought that they need to have homes that they need to go to homes. People need to know about these beautiful animals."
Last year, the school raised $7,000 dollars for the NSPCA. This year they hope to surpass that goal.
