BOARDMAN — As part of a service-learning project, students at Boardman Center Intermediate School recently collected 175 blankets to be donated to animal charities.

Two therapy dogs were brought into classrooms so the students could learn about how the dogs can provide affection, comfort and love to those in need. As part of the lesson, teachers talked to the students about giving back to the community.
