Description of the event: 
ESN Košice volunteers and international students joined the Volunteering Week in Košice organized by a local volunteering centre. We spent the afternoon walking the dogs, helping to clean the shelter and cages, and we donated both food and money. During the way there we handed out an envelope for those who asked whether they can donate money and we gave the money to the responsibles personally, together with the students. It was a lovely afternoon with an expectedly high number of participants.
