WASHBURN COUNTY AREA HUMANE SOCIETY’S
2016 “SALES FOR TAILS” THRIFT SALE
The August 5 and 6 “Sales for Tails” fundraiser for WCAHS animal shelter turned out to be a whisker-licking, tail- wagging success!
It was a great combination of shelter employees and volunteers who coordinated this annual sale. With the donations of items to sell from so many generous people and the wonderful help to load, unload and reload sale items, sort, set up, and mark, and then cashier and bag, the shelter had the best sale since this event started years ago. Thanks to those savvy shoppers who shopped 'til they dropped, the shelter profited over $3,000!
Also, not only did this effort greatly benefit the Washburn County Area Humane Society, but it will also benefit the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which is conveniently located near the Shelter and Fairgrounds, as the left over items which were not set aside to be used for another WCAHS Shelter fundraiser, will be donated to this community charity store.
The use of the large exhibit hall these last several years at the Washburn County Fairgrounds for this thrift sale has been invaluable, and WCAHS has always appreciated working with the Fair Board to make this annual event possible each year the weekend after the Washburn County Fair.
So, when you are cleaning out, clearing out, refurbishing, redecorating, reassessing the “stuff” in your house, garage, garden shed, tool shed, barn , boat house, cottage, cabin, apartment, duplex, storage unit------well, you get it------ think of putting it all aside for the 2017 “Sales for Tails”! This is a fundraiser so well worth having and, in fact, in dog years, has been going on for at least 63 years!!! So, the shelter will again need your help with all those very valuable items you no longer need for 1 more people year!!!
WCAHS feels extremely fortunate and is very grateful to receive this very generous donation given in memory of Germaine Gilbertson. This letter was sent along with the donation from Germaine's daughter Diane. Diane gave her permission to share this letter with everyone, showing her Mother's love for animals.
Jenna, Kendra and Shawn Rogan visited the shelter and brought gifts for the shelter animals that were given in place of birthday gifts for Jenna! Thank you for caring so much for the dogs and cats at WCAHS!
Chloe Swonger also chose to have friends and family bring items for the animals rather than gifts for her on her birthday. Chloe asked her friend Lily Hotchkiss to help her deliver all the items, and there were a lot, to the animals at WCAHS! Thank you Chloe and all of those that gave so generously!
