The East Greenbush Teachers Association and School-Related Personnel labor unions joined forces in September to raise money for an East Greenbush family to get their son, Killian, a needed therapy dog after falling on some hard times.
Together, the EGTA and SRP were able to raise over $3,100 through building-wide initiatives. These funds were used to offset travel and training costs to get their therapy dog, Zag, from California.
Special thanks to Kate and Lisa Morrow, who organized a raffle at Columbia High School, raising $675, and all the teachers and staff in each building who helped to coordinate donation collection for 50/50s and dress down days. Their efforts allowed this to happen!
