Students Raise $300 For Local Humane Society

Devon and Ethan man the table

One of our holiday season traditions here at Cherokee Creek Boys School is the Oconee Humane Society (OHS) fundraiser at Tractor Supply in Seneca, SC. This event was started by Weekend Manager William Carpenter, who routinely volunteers time at OHS.

Students sold hot dogs, chips, sodas and hot chocolate in addition to accepting donations of pet food and supplies. All donations, totalling about $300 were then deliverd to the OHS before returning to campus. Thanks to Treks Staff Paul Mathis and Royce Johnson for supervising this year’s event and thanks to Tractor Supply for, again, allowing students to set up camp right out front.

Other weekend activities included bowling, trips to the recreation fields for soccer and football scrimmages, the “Trotting ‘Round the Tree” horse show at Clemson University and the Nutcracker Ballet at the Clemson University Brooks Center. Students also “decked the halls” with a Christmas tree and placed lights and garland throughout the Lodge. Very festive!
