“We are just blown away.”
Those were the words of Greenbrier County Animal Shelter operations manager Ronica Williams when The West Virginia Daily News delivered 2,057 items to their door on Thursday, May 5.
Every single one of those items was donated by folks in the community, and we here at the paper echo Williams’ statement.
“The Humane Society is thrilled and grateful,” said Williams. “I’m just so thankful to the community.”
Donations gathered at the Daily News office spanned from bleach to dog beds, pet food to kennels.
Williams stated that there are 32 animals currently housed in the shelter, the majority of them dogs. There are also 15 kittens, so if you are seeking a new pet, there is no better time to go adopt.
Here is a list of donors who generously gave to our Greenbrier Humane Society item drive:
Nada Smith, Carol K. Anderson, Donna Critzer, Diana Harmon, Jo Ann Heddinger, Margy Burns, Brenda J. Smith, Julie and Richard Byrd, Barbara Martin, Curtis Pauley, Colt Dowdy, Adair Dowdy, Betty Seldomridge, Julie Erskine, Debbie Rivoire, Susie Minturn, Karen B. Lemons, Mary L. Swepston, Jenny Counts, Billy and Pam Carter, Brenda J. Smith, Teresa Lewis, Juanita S. Robertson, in memory of Virginia Slayton, in memory of Jack Swartout, Henry and Patty Hancock, George and Diane Simms, Joan Ahern, Brenda Tate, Roger L. Alder, Ronda Harper, and staff members of the West Virginia Daily News.
There were many anonymous donors and cash donations as well.
The West Virginia Daily News and the Greenbrier Humane Society thank all of you!
