The Comsewogue High School Business Honor Society recently collected over 100 containers of pet food and several packages of pet treats, leashes and dog toys, which they donated to Legislator Kara Hahn’s pet food and supplies drive for Long Island Cares.

In addition to collecting donations, some students lent their creativity to the cause by making supplies to donate. For example, senior Riley Hughes skillfully braided thick strands of fabric together to make a colorful chew toy.

Legislator Hahn recently visited Comsewogue High School to pick up the donations and share words of inspiration with the members of the Business Honor Society and its advisors Anthony Ketterer and Anthony Rovello. She explained that many families that face food insecurity also struggle to feed their pets and sometimes must make the tough choice of sending their beloved animals to a shelter or letting them go hungry at home.

“We’re so proud of our students for lending a hand to those who cannot advocate for themselves and putting their efforts toward supporting such an important cause,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Quinn. “Thank you to everyone in the Business Honor Society for their hard work and thank you to Legislator Kara Hahn for encouraging our students to give back and take care of those in need.”

Legislator Hahn will be sending the food and supplies to Long Island Cares, which has hosted an annual pet food and supplies drive since 2009. The nonprofit will split Legislator’s Hahn’s contributions between its own free supplies center, Baxter’s Pet Pantry, and Port Jefferson’s Save-a-Pet Animal Shelter.
