Helen Morgan School, Sparta, NJ
My name is Ben.
I am a 5th grade student at Helen Morgan School in Sparta.
Three years ago I got my cats, Hale & Ally (formerly Carson & Cassandra), thru a foster from your organization. Picture below.
My classmate, Charlotte, and I have a table at April's Treps Marketplace for our "Pawesome Cat & Dog Treats". We would like your permission to put a jar out for O.S.C.A.R. donations in the hopes that people will donate their change to you.
I will also donate any leftover dog treats and toys that I do not sell that night to your organization.
Please let me know if the donation jar is OK with you or if there is anything I need to make sure to include on the jar.
Thank you, Ben. We appreciate your generosity!!! We will contact you with the details for the donation jar. Good luck with TREPS! We hope that you and Charlotte will share a few TREPS photos."
