Paw Pals is getting ready for its last pet food drive and drop-off from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, in the Y101 parking lot, 4-8 N. 24th.

The event will help Paw Pals pet food pantry through its last few months before the organization disbands. Donors can simply pull up in their cars, and Paw Pals volunteers will unload the pet food for them. The group also is accepting cash donations.

For more information, call (217) 257-9326.


In Case You Missed It

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
