Sutton Elementary School is hosting "Help Friends with Paws For Melissa Baber" and they need your help.

Tiffany Hoffman, Kindergarten Teacher, at Sutton Elementary School was blessed to work alongside, Melissa Baber, her former assistant.  In 2015, Melissa was taken suddenly and way too soon in 2015.  Mrs. Hoffman wanted to do something to keep her memory and spirit alive for years to come.

Melissa loved animals.  Tiffany decided to host a pet supply drive in her classroom the first year and after that, it caught on throughout the whole school eventually becoming community-wide.

Now students have a friendly competition among classrooms and if they meet their goal of 85 items per classroom they get a popcorn and movie party.  There are also prizes for the top three classes.

Sutton would like to invite you to be a part of their pet drive.  You can donate items to the school located at 2060 Lewis Lane in Owensboro.  You can also drop items to the WBKR studios at 3301 Frederica Street and we will deliver them.
