Riverton Middle School (RMS) 7th graders Ellanie Forbis and Cambree Jevne are raising money for PAWS for Life Animal League in Riverton by making and selling pet bandanas in a variety of sizes.
RMS 7th graders select a community service project at the end of the school year. They chose PAWS because, in the summertime, they have a fundraiser at Day in the Park, Ellanie explained. “It is canceled this year because of COVID, so we are trying to raise money for them to make up for that loss.”
Cambree and Ellanie were able to make a total of 253 bandanas sizes S, M, L in two days. “We were up half the night,” said Cambree. The small bandanas fit cats and dogs weighing 15 lbs or less; medium bandanas fit medium-sized dogs; large bandanas fit dogs that weigh up to 90 lbs.
100% of the proceeds go to PAWS, and so far, $220 worth of bandanas have been sold, Cambree shared.
If you would like to purchase bandanas, you can do so by contacting Ellanie’s mom Tiffany on Facebook to place your order. Prices are as follows: S – $3.00, M – $4.00, and L – $5.00. Fabric donations would also be appreciated since they will continue making and selling these through May 19th.
On May 15th, you can find them at the Java Java parking lot for the Friday Night Cruise. There, you can purchase bandanas and/or make a monetary donation to PAWS.
