Little Friends donate to local animal shelter

Local youth donate supplies to animal shelter: Little Friends Day Care children donated and delivered $200 in pet food, toys and cleaning supplies to the Wabash County Animal Shelter Wednesday afternoon, July 27. In June, the LFDC Summer Adventure third, fourth and fifth grade students manned a lemonade stand to raise money to rent a bounce house for all of the daycare children to enjoy. Thanks to the support of parents, grandparents and friends, the students more than exceeded the amount needed to rent the bounce house and, after some discussion with their teacher, decided to donate the remaining $200 funds to the local animal shelter in the form of items that the facility needs most. Photo by Emma Rausch

In January, the board asked the buildings’ former owner, Julie Locke, to report progress on the refurbishing of the sites to it. However, prior to that, Locke sold the buildings to WMI, which took possession on July 15.
