This is story is about Zach and Thomas Eller's volunteer work: We have always loved animals and have gotten dog food for our birthdays instead of presents. We started volunteering for a pet rescue organization and wanted to do more, so we baked the dogs some biscuits. We sold them at the pet adoptions and gave the money to help with fostering expenses. From there, our business grew and we have been able to donate almost $8,000. to pet rescue.

Please read the following narrative about volunteer, Ellen Dean. Ellen Dean addresses the need to educate new generations of children to the age old use for books. Opening their minds to another way of learning that does not include television or computers. She helps them sharpen their reading skills therefore indirectly helping them overall in the whole school experience. Which will benefit them as they grow older and advance to each grade.

Please read about a "super" group of volunteers, Skiffytown League of Heroes, superheroes helping charities. Skiffytown League of Heroes (SLOH) began when a group of comic book enthusiasts, (sixty so far and counting), began talking to each other over the internet. As we discovered we loved the lessons from the superheroes we read about and wanted to bring those same values to the real world around us with characters of our own creation.
