Some students from Oasis Elementary School visited KESQ while learning the importance of community involvement.
Ms. Kay’s third grade class took a tour of our newsroom and while they were there they also gave a donation to Animal Samaritans.
For the past several months, students have been collecting food and other items to donate to the organization.
The children met various animals and volunteers from Animal Samaritan.
