LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - Now through May 10, Veterans Park Academy for the Arts is collecting pet food and pet supplies for Gulf Coast Humane Society.
Students are asking the community to get involved and drop off donations. The idea for the food drive came from teacher, Victoria Paschke, and now all grade levels of the K-8 school are competing against each other for the most supplies collected.
The overall goal for the drive is to collect at least 2,500 pounds of supplies.
Veterans Park Academy for the Arts is located at 49 Homestead Rd. S, Lehigh Acres.
