Quarters for Critters, great summer project for kiddos!

Hey kiddos in the Lebanon County community!
What are you doing during your time off this summer?

The HSLC is starting a new fundraiser for the animals at the shelter! We have a five gallon jug that we would love to fill with quarters!

How can you help? Here are ideas!

Have a bake sale or car wash, mow the neighbor’s lawn, do chores for family and friends!

Then would you consider giving a donation of $5 or $10 in quarters to add to our Quarters for Critters collection jug?

If you would like to donate, please stop in the shelter anytime during open business hours. We will take a picture, maybe along with one of the shelter animals, and post to share your kindness and our progress! For every $5 you donate, you will be entered into a drawing for a family 4 pack of tickets to HersheyPark! Fun times ahead!

We are accepting donations through Sunday, August 11.

We will select a winner on Monday, August 12.

Woofs and purrs for giving thoughtful consideration to helping the shelter animals this Summer!

This is a purrfect community service project for individuals, families, playground groups, summer camps or daycare kiddos too!
