Crafting for a Cause: T-Shirts Toys for Rescue Dogs

It’s back! Recycle old t-shirts to create tug toys for rescue dogs!

Students collecting community service hours will receive an hour of credit for every 2 dog toys made.

Bring your completed toys to the Harrison Township Public Library through December 31, and they will be donated to a local shelter/rescue.

One t-shirt makes one toy. For a video tutorial to show you how to make the toys, please go to http://bit.ly/2uSweVP
