Students collect used stamps to support Seeing Eye dog

The Hunterdon Review of Lebanon,New Jersey, reports "...20,000 already-postmarked stamps collected at the High Bridge Middle School by January will translate into food and care costs for Star, a Seeing Eye dog that the students and their supporters earned with stamps collected over the previous decade."

The stamps were clipped off business and personal mail by current students at the grades 6-8 school. Former students, teachers, grandparents, moms also clipped and contributed stamps which were turned over to a mixture dealer in Easton, PA.

The school's guidance counselor, Ann Walton, is quoted in the article as saying she doesn’t know how much money the 20,000 stamps will raise. However, this year’s annual stamp collection broke all previous records.
