Class of 2021 Legacy Gift

The goal of our class gift campaign was to reach 21% class giving participation – in honor of our graduation year – by fundraising for toys, enrichment activities, and the other necessities for the newly renovated Cat Ward at the Henry & Lois Foster Hospital for Small Animals. Together, we raised $495 with 24% participation! These donations will make a huge difference for our feline friends while they are in our care.

Thank you, Class of 2021, and also to Dean Cribb for his personal match!
