This week during the lunch periods, the MBS 6th Grade Class is selling homemade pet treats to support The Seeing Eye of Morristown.
Through the years, Morristown-Beard School has enjoyed a close relationship with The Seeing Eye, regularly supporting the organization through its “Pennies For Puppies” fundraiser, and hosting speakers and their guide dogs here on the MBS campus.
In March, Don MacGowan, a longtime volunteer with The Seeing Eye, spoke to the 6th Grade Class about how Seeing Eye dogs are trained and paired with visually-impaired people.
This month, the MBS 6th Grade is again conducting a “Pennies For Puppies” fundraiser in addition to this week’s homemade pet treat sale.
Established in 1929, The Seeing Eye is the oldest existing guide dog school in the world and serves more than 400 blind or visually impaired people each year.
