On behalf of PALS (People Assisting the Lodi Shelter), I'd like to thank Clairmont Elementary School for their very generous $3,545 donation to PALS which will be used to improve the lives of many homeless dogs and cats in the Lodi area. The funds have been placed in the building fund for the new PALS Haven Adoption Center and Sanctuary, which will be located near the Sycamore Lane kennels in Lodi.

We at PALS felt honored and grateful that Clairmont Elementary School chose us as their spring 2012 schoolwide fundraising project. Special thanks go to Principal Susan Hitchcock and fundraising committee members Denis Silber, Eileen Ruiz, Sandy Montoya, Julie Carloni and Sheila Baumbach who worked tirelessly organizing such a great event. In addition, thanks so much to the classroom teachers who coordinated the fundraising efforts in their individual rooms.

A huge "thank you" also goes to the amazing Clairmont students who gave so willingly and generously. Every class in the school participated, and the students far exceeded their initial goal of $2,500.

When Lodi Animal Services officers Jennifer Bender and Brena DeFazio, Lucky the PALS mascot (a.k.a. Carol Evans) and I visited the school during the fundraising campaign, we were very impressed with the enthusiastic, caring and well-mannered students we saw on campus.

Thanks again, Clairmont Elementary School. You are much appreciated!
