ALBERT LEA, MN — Students in grades 6-12 from Alden-Conger were out and about giving a helping hand Tuesday.
Some students helped out at the Freeborn County Humane Society. They did everything from dirty work to freshening up water for the cats.
“There’s about ten of us here that came to the humane society and we’re just helping out wherever they need help. Me and my friend were washing laundry and filling water bowls,” said Katie Smith, a sophomore at Alden-Conger.
Students were able to choose what activity they wanted to help out with.
“I’ve grown up with animals and I live on a farm and so I really like being with animals and I thought this would be fun to give back and to help out,” said Morgan Grunzke, a sophomore at Alden-Conger.
Choir students from Alden-Conger sang at a couple of nursing homes in Albert Lea. Jazz band students were also in Albert Lea and performed at Thorne Crest Retirement Center. Some of the outdoor activities were cancelled because of the weather.
