Students raise money for Humane Society

Students at Clanton Intermediate School participated in their second annual Penny Drop fundraiser to benefit the Chilton County Humane Society.

They raised almost $700 during the month of February to help support the spay and neuter program, which funds $20 spay/neuter certificates for animals in the county.

For a limited time, the Alabama Spay and Neuter will match dollar-for-dollar any funds raised by our local shelter.

Several individuals and businesses partnered with Clanton Intermediate, raising an additional $2,800.

Among those who contributed are Food Pak 3 in Jemison, Richard Moore of Peoples Southern Bank, Stokes Automotive, Southern Dixie Auto Repair, Chilton County Commissioner Joe Headley, state Rep. Jimmy Martin, Chris Speaks, Karen Armstrong and Heart of Dixie Parts and Equipment in Maplesville.

The class in each grade that donated the most money received a “Popcorn and a Movie” party. The winners were: third grade, Courtney Connell’s class (below); fourth grade, Aleta Wyatt’s class; and fifth grade, Brooke Sullivan’s class (bottom).

Barbara and Mickey Bates of Clanton Tractor and Equipment provided the popcorn and drinks for the party.
