Roanoke County fourth grader to be recognized for animal care donation

Posted: Updated:
A Roanoke County student will be recognized at an upcoming school board meeting for his efforts to make a difference for animals.

Fourth grader, Connor Jones, is using his talents to raise money for Angels of Assisi.

Connor is in the gifted art program and started selling drawings for $.50 apiece.

Back in December, he showed up at the shelter with $100 worth of food and supplies for the cats and dogs.

He's made one donation and has plans to keep giving.  

“Just keep being helpful to animals, because they're like people too, they're living animals, they're like us,” Connor explained.

“It made me feel really good.  It's one of those moments when you feel like I've done something right.  He's learning and he's really becoming his own person,” Connor’s mom said, Annalee Jones.

Connor will be recognized at the Roanoke County School Board meeting on Feb. 27th  at 7 p.m.
