Torch Club Wins National Merit Prize

The Mackenzie-Scott Torch Club had something to celebrate this month when one of its service projects was named a MERIT winner for the Torch Club National Project:  Protect Animals with Service (PAWS). For its part in the project, which focuses on caring for and ensuring the well-being of animals, Torch Club members spent weeks recycling hundreds of bottles and cans to help stop ocean pollution and educate and Club members and families on the effects of pollution on sea life. Our kids collected nearly 3,800 bottles and cans, and funds gathered after the cans and bottles were redeemed were donated to Heal the Bay.
