Community Consolidated School District 146 committee D146 Gives recently stopped by PAWS in Tinley Park, IL with a large donation courtesy of the D146 staff.  

Every month the School District 146 committee coordinates different donation projects that benefit different areas of the community.  Mrs. Julie Harris, a 5th grade teacher and teacher union president at Kruse Education Center in Orland Park heads D146 Gives and also chose to be the chairperson for the PAWS donation project. 

She said, “The committee comes together once a year to decide which monthly donation projects we will undertake.  I happen to choose the PAWS project because of my love for dogs, especially shelter dogs, and wanted to create awareness and help the shelters as much as possible. PAWS Tinley is local shelter and I know they always appreciate whenever I make donations.” 

 “By the end of the month we had so many items collected it took 15 members of our committee to deliver it to PAWS. Donations included pet food, collars, leashes, toys, towels, cleaning supplies, storage supplies, etc.,” said Mrs. Harris.

The D146 Gives group packed the lobby of the PAWS building with generously donated items from the School District 146 employees.  The group was also given a tour of the facility and got to see the animals up for adoption.  

“This has been my favorite project all year because it is so near and dear to my heart. And by the amount generous donations received from School District 146 staff, I would say they liked this project, too.”
