Olmos partners with Heifer International to make a difference

EarthThe Olmos Elementary School KOWL Science Club members sponsored a campaign for Heifer International. The mission of Heifer International is to work with communities around the world to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.

The KOWL Club made a commitment to help raise money to donate a cow and other animals for families living in countries in need. The KOWL Club viewed videos of how countries can receive assistance through Heifer International.

The whole campus was involved through the sharing of videos made by the KOWL Club and classroom collections of donations. Olmos Elementary raised over $700 and will be helping countries around the world by donating a cow, a pig, chickens, bees and plants.
