The Decorah Viking Girls Basketball Team spent Saturday volunteering at the Humane Society of Northeast Iowa. The girls walked dogs, played with the animals, and did some cleaning for the shelter. The basketball team gave a small monetary donation of $100. The monetary donation was possible because of fundraising efforts over the summer at the cheese curd booth at the Winneshiek County Fair.
The basketball team also will be taking non-perishable donations during its home opener against Cedar Rapids Xavier on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. The goods collected on Tuesday will be delivered to the local food pantry, with a small monetary donation of $100 also given to the food pantry.
Volunteering at the Humane Society and gathering goods for the food pantry are part of the girls basketball team's community service project.
