Having fun on the set of San Antonio Living

See our Therapy Team, Melissa Allen-Jones and her therapy dog, Maggie.  Maggie was the "Maiden of the Royal Court" The kids care club is a club that Melissa started that promotes participation in community service projects. The students selected the San Antonio Humane Society  as their project. They sponsored Maggie as El Rey Fido. Students donated change to raise money. Lifetouch photos donated a photographer and students paid $5 to have their photo with Maggie. The kids care club also sold paper bones for a quarter to "feed the dogs". All this went to the SAHS. In all, they raised nearly $4000 & had 781 supporters (donors).
