Some students from Oasis Elementary School paid a visit to KESQ while learning the importance of community involvement.
Mrs. Kay's third-grade class took a tour of our newsroom and while here, they also presented Animal Samaritans with a donation.
For the last few months, the students have been collecting food and other items to donate to the organization.
The kids met several animals and Animal Samaritan volunteers.
