This month, the Kimpton Middle School Multiple Disabilities Class raised money for the Summit County Humane Society by making and selling dog treats for school staff members and the Stow and Munroe Falls police K-9s. Lindsay McCulloch, Kimpton Middle School life skills-intervention specialist, said her class received dozens of orders for treat bags this year that, at $2 a bag, raised has raised close to $200 for the local humane society. "The treats were made, packaged, and delivered by my students who embrace multiple disabilities," said McCulloch. "As an educator I thrive on opportunities where students can have fun learning while making a difference in the community they live in." Each bag included 10 dog treats in gingerbread men, bell and Christmas tree shapes. McCulloch said this year marks the second time her class made the treats, but the first time the goods were sold to support a separate cause. "I plan to do this yearly," said McCulloch. "Our class truly enjoys helping animals."
