Student Service Projects

Complete your Service learning hours at the HSEP!

Even though our volunteer program is on hold due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we would like to help all students complete their service learning hours. Our furry residents are always in need of toys to help keep them physically and mentally enriched while they await their fur-ever families to find them. We want to encourage students to make DIY toys to donate to our facility. There is no need to go out and purchase new toys to do these projects; look around your home for an old t-shirt, cardboard, leftover toilet paper roll, and you can make a toy that will entertain our animals for hours!

For every one toy, you make you will receive 15 minutes' credit. Please make sure everything you will donate is clean before dropping it off at the shelter. Please package all the toys you make in a bag or box and include the following:

Attn: Student Service Project/ Lupe Diaz
Your name

Once we have received your project, you will receive an email with an attached letter with the hours you have accumulated.
