Issue Date: December 3, 2018 |Welcome to a special edition of of shelter news, updates, and information! Stay tuned for your regularly scheduled issue which will be published on December 15. Thank you!

I can't believe the holiday season upon us. Each year, volunteers organize gifts for HSHA's hourly staff (no management team members)to extend their appreciation. These employees are extremely dedicated, often functioning with limited resources and for long hours. But, their passion, dedication, and love for the shelter residents overrides all the job's difficulties to propel them forward each day.
The Volunteers, Sally Hitz and Tiffany Rymoff-Linta (cat team leaders) will be coordinating this effort by gathering cash and gift cards. So, if you would like to bless the kennel, customer service, and medical staff please put your donations in the designated box inside the volunteer room. Smaller amounts of cash or gift cards are best, but anything is acceptable. All donations should be submitted by the close of business on Saturday, December 16.
If you have any specific questions relating to this holiday giving effort, please contact Sally Hitz directly at sahitz@comcast.net.
Thank you!
