Two Florence schools challenge each other to collect items for shelter animals this Christmas


FLORENCE, SC – Two Florence elementary schools are “Lending a Paw” this holiday season.  Briggs and Royal Elementary schools are challenging each other to bring in animal supplies for a “FILL THE TRUCK”  campaign.

“Our children are very responsible and they love helping and you’d be amazed if you ask them to do simple things they would do it very quickly and if you ask them to support something they will bring in as much as they possibly can to support that effort,” said Tara Newton with Briggs Elementary.

The goodies will be given to the Florence Area Humane Society. Students are collecting food, toys, and cleaning supplies for the shelter until December 15th.  The students want to make sure all the cats, dogs, and even, horses are the shelter have a Merry Christmas too.
