EngAGE Team Member Sharon Springer sent in this photo, which represents the culmination of the “Origami 4 Animals” project that we posted about last week. See the previous post here and be sure to read the article in the Burbank Leader about 10-year-old Girl Scout Catherine de Wolff, who led an effort with family, friends, and residents of the Burbank Senior Artists Colony to create folded-paper animals to offer at the Burbank Farmers’ Market in exchange for donations to the Burbank Animal Shelter. “In two Saturdays at the market, one in October and one in November, the group raised more than $1,160. Catherine, along with her 10-year-old neighbor Simreen Kaur Sethi and Springer, presented a check for that amount to representatives of the Burbank Animal Shelter during a City Council meeting Monday night.” ~ This is such a great example of successful intergenerational and community cooperation!
