OAKHURST – Two Glacier High School Charter students are helping rescued animals in the mountain area by holding a bake sale fundraiser for the Eastern Madera County SPCA (EMC SPCA).
On Friday, Oct. 19, a table laden with delightful confections will be set up from noon to 6 p.m., between Vons and CVS, at the Vons shopping center in Oakhurst.Doing all the baking themselves are Jessalyn Talley and Edward Firmalo, who will personally donate the necessary confectionary ingredients. Both are members of the Associated Student Body (ASB) class at Glacier High School, where teens are challenged to provide community service for extra credit.
Besides offering baked goods, Firmalo and Talley are requesting public donations of supplies for kittens, including food, cat litter and kitty toys. They will deliver those items a local thrift store that helps feral cats.
Talley loves animals and came up with the idea of a charity bake sale for the local animal shelter. Partner Firmalo is glad they agreed on another good cause.
“Cause 4 Paws is a local thrift store/cat and kitten rescue,” says Firmalo, 14. “They don’t get a lot of publicity so I thought this would be a good way to help them get some.”
Glacier High School Charter is affiliated with Mountain Home School Charter and together form a nonprofit educational entity known as Western Sierra Charter Schools.
Firmalo and Talley invite animal-lovers to drop off kitten supplies and pick up something yummy to take home on Friday, at the Glacier High EMC SPCA donation table.
Vons is located at 40044 Highway 49 in Oakhurst.
