Fifth-graders make dog toys to sell this weekend; proceeds to go American Family Children’s Hospital
MADISON, Wis. — A group of fifth-graders at Falk Elementary is working on a special project to benefit the American Family Children’s Hospital.
Students are making dog toys as part of a service learning project. Their goal is to raise $500 to donate to American Family Children’s Hospital. The kids have been working on making these toys for the past couple of months and plan on selling them this weekend. They say this type of project not only lets them have fun but benefits a great cause.
“It makes me feel like we made a change. The tiniest change can mean a lot so just do it if you feel like it,” fifth-grader Tianna Thomas said.
“It was around the holidays when we decided to do this and the kids don’t always get to spend time with their families, so a little bit of helping can help a lot,” said fift-grader Nikola Souzek.

If you would like to buy a toy or help donate to the cause, the class will be selling them this weekend from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Miller and Sons in Verona and then from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Lilianas. If they don’t sell all the toys then, the rest will be available at Tabby Jacks in Middleton on Sunday for their puppy bowl.
