Founder of the Friends Of Guthrie Animals Von Coburn, center, was presented with the proceeds from the St. Mary's middle school Lent and Service project fundraiser. Over the course of several weeks the students sold popsicles after school and raised a substantial amount of money for the animal group.

The St. Mary's Catholic School in Guthrie had a popsicle selling fundraiser through the middle school as part of their Lent project for Friends of Guthrie Animals.
One of the St. Mary's teacher said the school chooses a particular group at the start of their Lent and Service project every year for the students to work toward. This years theme was, "Taking Care of Gods Creatures." All the proceeds from their popsicle fundraiser, approximately $300, went toward the local animal group Friends of Guthrie Animals.
As Lent came to an end, so did their fundraiser project. On Good Friday the students presented the money they raised to the founder of the animal organization, Von Coburn. Early on Friday morning, Coburn visited the middle school students at St. Mary's and talked to them about what it is her group does and the importance of their work.
She described what animals need, how they can get sick and what her team has done to integrate into the community as first responders for animals in need. After her explanation, the students handed her the collected funds and thanked her for what she does as she thanked them for supporting her and her teams work.
Coburn mentioned that the donation is greatly appreciated as it is coming just before the Bow Wow Luau on May 6.
