This semester, students at Columneetza Secondary School participated in Junior Achievement’s Company Program. The marketing class came up with the idea of selling rubber wrist bands with
catchy phrases on them to raise funds for the BC SPCA Williams Lake Branch. Naming their company “Paws it”, the students ordered 750 wrist bands to sell at $3 each around the school and at booths set up at various local businesses. They also marketed the bracelets on their Paws it Facebook page.
The students presented a cheque for $1,500 to the BC SPCA Williams Lake
Branch, along with a presentation about their business and a promise of
more funds to come. By the time all of the bracelets are sold and
donations are received, the students expect to raise a total of $2,800.
The BC SPCA would like to congratulate Paws it on their successful marketing project and thank everyone involved for the generous donation; these students have made a difference to animals in need.
The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization funded primarily by public donations. Our mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
