Torch Club members at the Rogers Unit (a service learning and leadership club for youth ages 11-13) recently volunteered at the local animal shelter. The group worked hard cleaning out kennels, refilling water bowls, and changing towels and blankets. After all of the work was accomplished, they had a great time socializing and playing with the cats and dogs sheltered at the facility. In this picture, Omar Contreras is seen getting attached to a feline. Different groups of Torch Club members will continue to volunteer at the animal shelter every Saturday each week.
of our club members report finding valuable adult connections at the club.
