West Shore students raise more than $2,000 to help veterans
On May 8, the students in Tom Acri's second period social studies class at West Shore Middle School held a dinner to raise money for Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities, a nonprofit group that provides trained service dogs to U.S. veterans through its Project Heal program.
The class had hoped to bring in between $500 and $1,000. Instead, they raised more than $2,000.
"The kids were great," Acri said.
