Strive to be Confident
Last Thursday was a special day in our building. Thank you to all of our guest Veterans that visited Zia so we could show our thanks for your service. Thanks to the generosity of our Zia community, we were able to donate a check for $575 to Four Paws and a Wake Up, a local non-profit organization that trains service dogs for Veterans. We all enjoyed the demonstration that CB gave us at the assembly! Our top 3 Pennies for Paws classes were Ms. Suggs, Ms. Avelar, and Ms. Gurnea's classes! We are also grateful for the families that were able to stop by for Turkey Day lunch! In total, 130 families visited our building. It was an amazing day!
