Hello and a big thank you to everyone who donated items to this month’s Side with Love collection. This month we were helping out our furry friends by collecting items needed by our local SPCA. The donations did not disappoint! We collected 34 cans of cat food, 31 cans of dog food, 17 containers of treats, 3 dog bowls, 13 toys, 3 miscellaneous objects, 5 bottles of soap, 10 rolls of paper towels and 8.5 lbs of cat litter! What an amazing result. These much needed items will be brought to the SPCA in the coming weeks and will go towards helping those animals in need. If you would like to continue to donate supplies to the SPCA then check out their website at http://www.spcaonline.com. Our next month’s collection is Soap for Hope. We will be collecting personal hygiene items like shampoo, soap, lotion, cleaning supplies, toothpaste, tissues, etc. These items will be part of a county wide effort organized by Catholic Charities and will go to help those who need them in Tompkinsa nd Tioga County.
