Park HOSA Reporter, Brooklynne Polk (12/20/17)

Washington Park High School student members of the HOSA Future Health Professional Chapter supported the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus through several activities. On Saturday, October 28, student made organic dog treats to be used as a fundraiser.  Students also volunteered their time at Lucypawlooza, an annual fundraiser for WHS-Racine Campus. All proceeds went to a new much needed building. In addition, students held a fundraiser on December 6 at Jose’s Blue Sombrero, Racine, and sold their signature HOSA cookies at Park High School, currently raised $300.00. Finally students are hosting a supply donation drive for much needed items such as Pet Supplies, Batteries, Toys, etc.

Bethany Zimpel stated, “As a volunteer at Wisconsin Humane Society in Racine, I see how community support means everything. I started an annual fundraiser called Lucypawlooza in 2013 after our dog Lucy passed away. Together with the community, we’ve raised over $10,000 over the years. I’m so excited to see the Park HOSA students have such a passion for helping nonprofits in our community. I hope they will inspire you to helping as well!”

Tessa Toutant, Park Senior and HOSA member says “It is important for our community to raise awareness to get the new building up and running to help out Racine’s furry friends. The animals are like family so we need to treat them like family. Park HOSA is committed to helping whenever they need our help.”
