The Green Teens are a group of sixth to 12th graders who perform service projects and community outreach efforts to help protect the environment. Some of their programs include recycling, creating “green” crafts and beach clean-ups. As part of one of its service projects, the group recently made gluten-free doggie treats and donated (http://www.saveapetli.net/donate-long-island-animal-shelt...
) them to Save-A-Pet.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak to the Green Teens members,” Ms. Schoepfer said. “They will have the opportunity to learn about our wonderful organization, how they can volunteer (http://www.saveapetli.net/
