One of Air Base K - 8 Center’s students has taken on a project initiative that has demonstrated her perseverance and dedication. Lead to Feed is a project created by Claire Remmen, a National Junior Honor Society member, in the spring of 2019. The project’s mission is to help reduce the cost of feeding dogs in local rescue facilities by selling original hand woven paracord dog leashes and donating the profits to these facilities. Today, Claire’s project continues to thrive and make immense progress. According to Mrs. Remmen, her mother, “almost $1,000 of leashes have been sold since the project’s creation.” In February 2020, Lead to Feed has donated $500 to Paws4You, a rescue shelter in Miami - Dade’s Kendall area.

Remmen’s vision lives on as she has seen the impact it has made and hopes to expand the project’s efforts and outreach in the South Florida community. “Lead to Feed is an incredible project that is built with the hard work of our incredible team. I hope to see it expand its goals to reducing the stray dog population in South Florida as well as our community outreach. With our Air Base team, I see great success on the horizon” says Claire.
