Wayne Township Auto Program Goes to the Dogs (and Cats)

Wayne Township Auto Program Goes to the Dogs, (and Cats)

When the subject of what the Auto Program could do to help out in the
community, as it has done with past projects, Auto student Lizzy Daly
came up with the idea of helping out local animal shelters. She reached
out to find what items were most needed, and then went to work on a
pet drive. With the help of her fellow Auto students from both Hills and
Valley, alumni, teachers, friends, and community members, over 1500
pounds of pet food was collected, along with other necessities such as
toys, towels, and blankets. These were delivered to local shelters after
school by Auto students and parents.

Previous community outreach projects by the Auto Program have
included assembling and providing bicycles to District students in need,
organizing, and hosting an annual car fair/career night, and for many
years, transforming donated vehicles into demolition derby cars which
are driven by District teachers and Administrators.
