Student council members from Emerson J. Dillon Middle School recently launched the annual Adopt-a-Cause campaign to help a local animal care organization.

For the second year in a row, the students chose to support the Oswego County Animal Welfare League, which rescues and cares for pet until they are given a forever home.

Students have already started their fundraising efforts by hosting a candy counting contest.

As part of the contest, students had an opportunity (for a small fee) to guess the number of pieces of candy in two separate jugs.

The winners were Tatetum Patnode and Nicholas Hanson.

The fundraiser netted $212 for OCAWL.

However, students are pushing to make an even bigger impact.

More fundraisers are planned for the coming months, including a hat day, food and supply collection, and other activities.
