Lenihan Intermediate School students in the leadership group Ricochet sold kindness grams during the month of February, which included kind messages and a treat. As part of this project, students raised funds to support the Animal Rescue League and Splash 4 Life splash pad fundraiser.

Recently, Lenihan students Abby Dawson, Chesni Uhde, Ella Grife, and Autumn Thompson went shopping with the money raised for supplies for the ARL. The girls were able to purchase $211 worth of pet food and supplies. The girls delivered the supplies and even cuddled with a puppy at the ARL.  Ricochet next plans to present the funds raised to the Splash 4 Life group later in March.
