Student donates $800 to Trumbull Animal Group
On March 30, Keshav Khazanchi, a junior at Trumbull High School, donated a check for $800 to Gail Marshall, president of Trumbull Animal Group (TAG), at the Trumbull Animal Shelter, 324 Church Hill Road.
Formed in 1999, TAG is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. They work closely with the Trumbull Animal Control officer to provide a variety of services to lost and/or abandoned animals admitted to the shelter.
Keshav decided to make the donation to the group when he read an article in The Trumbull Times that TAG needed money to buy medicines for abandoned animals in Trumbull. He raised this money by coaching students from the Fairfield Science Enrichment club for Connecticut Regional Middle School Science Bowl Competition that was held recently at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. Students from all over Connecticut compete in this spectacular science event and test their knowledge in numerous fields of science. The team won Second Place in the Model Robotic Car Competition and Third Place in the Science Bowl Competition
Keshav is member of Trumbull High school debate team and Model UN Club and has also volunteered number of hours at Yale New -Haven hospital.
Fairfield Science Club is a community service project by high schools students from Fairfield County. The club provides service to the community by providing Saturday enrichment classes in science, math, vocabulary and writing to elementary and middle school students. At the same time, the students help charities and non-profit organizations from proceeds generated through these activities. All proceeds of the club are donated to charities.
