Betsy Chanatry and Cassidy Rockwood are taking action to help save endangered animals.
“We want to save endangered animals so they don’t become extinct,” Chanatry said.
The two children — Chanatry, 10, and Rockwood, 9, need the help of fellow Cazenovia residents.
The girls currently have a donation box at Cazenovia Children’s House at 2757 Route 20 East.
The money they collect will be sent to the National Wildlife Federation, America’s largest conservation organization. It protects wildlife and their habitat and works to restore and maintain healthy ecosystems.
The girls said they have been interested in saving endangered animals for the past two years, and are excited to have finally organized this fundraising drive to help the cause.
So far the students have raised more than $40. They will be accepting donations until March 30.
Checks made out to the National Wildlife Federation may be mailed to CCH, 2757 Rt. 20 East, Cazenovia, NY 13035.
All who are interested are welcome to visit CCH to see the display that Chanatry and Rockwood have decorated in the front hall.
