MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Dance Team, the “Sassy Cats” gave back to the Baldwin County community this fall with a pair of volunteer efforts. The Sassy Cats spent time at both the Potato Drop and assisting at the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF).
“We really enjoyed getting the opportunity to bond with each other while giving back to our community,” said team captain Jennifer Harris. “We hope to help out with other projects in the spring.”
At ARF, the Sassy Cats helped with feeding and cleaning as well as taking the animals for walks and playing with the animals.
The Georgia College Potato Drop is an annual event organized by the GC GIVE Center, where many student organizations come together to bag potatoes for hungry families throughout Georgia.
