The Stoughton police dog, Ole, visited Kegonsa Elementary School on Thursday morning (April 12) after the school helped raise money to support Ole in his service to the community.

Earlier this year, Kegonsa Working for Kids organized a shoe drive that encouraged students, staff and community members to donate new or gently used shoes for a fundraiser.  Kegonsa ultimately collected 2,950 pairs of shoes.  The Kegonsa Student Council and Working for Kids chose to donate $800 of those proceeds to Ole, whose K-9 care is funded by community donations.

Ole and his handler, Officer O'Neil, visited Kegonsa for an all-school assembly so the kids could team more about what it takes to be a police dog and handler and could ask questions.  A check presentation ceremony followed.
