THOMASTON — During the month of November, students from Oceanside Middle School collected donations of food, toys, and supplies to help the animals in need at Pope Memorial Humane Society. The 8th graders began by collecting boxes to decorate and then adorned them with the PMHS wish list, quotes and decorations to distribute to classrooms throughout the school as well as at local businesses.

Thanks to the huge help of our community, this donation drive was an incredible success. Donation boxes were overflowing with goods. Many thanks to the local businesses, (Loyal Biscuit, Pet Quarters, Tractor Supply and Hannaford) for hosting a donation box from the OMS students.

We are so very proud of our students in asking to support our local shelter and reaching out to their families, friends and the community. Many thanks to everyone!
