NRHH brings campus together with ‘Cats for a Cause’

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) hosted an event to make cat toys out of recycled T-shirts in preparation for an upcoming chapter service event.

Amber Tolson, vice president of Service, describes NRHH:

“The honorary premiere dedicated to recognizing leaders in the residence halls and a branch of NACURH, Inc. NACURH, as an organization, believes that recognition is necessary in a strong residence hall community,” she said. “We also take part in and create different service opportunities on and off of campus.”

Despite the university closure due to adverse weather on Friday, Feb. 17, many students participated with their siblings during SVSUs kids and sibs’ weekend. Sarah Molhoek, an SVSU sophomore and criminal justice major, attended with her two younger sisters.

“My little sister saw the advertisements for the event. She is an animal lover and wanted to attend to help animals in need,” she said as her reason for attending the event. “I think it is a good cause and I’m glad my sisters wanted to participate.”

They will be donating the toys to Amazing Grace Animal Shelter as a service event. They are a no-kill, nonprofit animal rescue within the local community.

It will be held on Feb. 25. Students will present the toys from the first event and donate their time caring for and interacting with animals, cleaning enclosures, cleaning the walls and floors of the facility, and picking up after the animals.

Transportation to the shelter will be provided, or interested parties are welcome to drive themselves. Volunteers will be provided a T-shirt and are encouraged to bring water and light refreshments.

All students are welcome to attend regardless of involvement with NRHH. Students who would like to participate should contact Amber Tolson at

Amazing Grace animal rescure is also open to volunteers outside of the event to help with animal and facility care more regularly.

Those interested in helping Amazing Grace Animal Rescue outside of the Cats for a Cause event do not need to have a set schedule for volunteering, and can volunteer as-avaliable.

Amazing Grace Animal Rescue can be contacted via Facebook for more information on their mission, animals avaliable for adoption, and volunteer opportunities.
