FARGO — Student's submitted drawings are now making their way onto merchandise at a south Fargo doggy daycare.

When fourth graders at Clara Barton Elementary in Fargo were asked to draw happy dogs, idea was passed along to South Bark's social media and marketing manager, Nic Smith, who was looking for monthly tote designs.

The collaboration grew and the creative designs were adopted for merchandise at the doggy daycare.

The pictures were printed on greeting cards, tote bags and t-shirts to sell in-store.

A portion of those sales will go back to Clara Barton to benefit the "Husky Hutch", a food pantry program for students at the school.

"Besides just food, it's hygiene products, anything that will help students that might not have the best situations," Smith said.

Smith said the business hopes to continue this collaboration as a monthly feature — possibly with different grade levels and different schools.
