The group learned that the Placerville Police dog is retiring soon and it is trying to raise money for a new police dog, as well as dog equipment for the Placerville Police Department.
The group is reaching out to the public for donations to help raise the money. The project will benefit the Police Department, the community and provide a valuable lesson for the Markham students.
Some of the suggested donations are: water bowl, leashes, collars, tug ropes, tennis balls and any other new or gently used dog toys sitting around your house.
Supporters can send checks or donations directly to Edwin Markham School, 2800 Moulton Drive, Placerville, 95667. Make checks payable to Markham Middle School with Dollars for Dogs on the memo line. The last day to donate is Dec. 16.
Diane Schmidt, seventh grade language arts and leadership teacher at Markham, appreciates any contribution and can be contacted at 530-622-0403 ext. 5504
