Carpentry Students Build Animal Shelters for Charity
Dog Houses for Charity.
In the spring of this year, Siemens Corporation of Fort Payne, AL donated wooden boxes used for shipping containers to the DeKalb County Animal Adoption Center in hopes that people might use them to build dog houses. A shelter volunteer and EPCOT employee were asked if she could use them, and a plan began to form! Phillip Hill, the carpentry instructor, agreed to take it on as a project and a competition for the class.
The students were recently recognized for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Doghouses were judged on Creativity in Design, Overall Appearance, Quality of Construction, and Paint. The first place winner was Brianna Conner (PM), who received $50 and a certificate. 2nd place went to Kacie McLaughlin (PM) and 3rd place went to Charles Burton (AM).
Completed doghouses will be sold to raise funds for homeless animals through the shelters in DeKalb and Jackson Counties.
