‘Laffle’ nets nice haul for Humane Society
Those generous employees at UW-Green Bay (hey, that’s us!) have done it again. Eileen Kolb of the Registrar’s Office, who coordinated the drive, says the Bay Area Humane Society was absolutely delighted to learn that many, many bags of pet food, toys, chewies, collars and the like would be headed their way as part of the Spring 2011 ‘Laffle.”
“Thanks to all who participated,” Kolb says, and she shares that the Humane Society is still and always grateful for any donations. (In fact, if you have more towels, sheets, bath mats, rugs, blankets, etc., feel free to bring them over because they are particularly short on those types of items.) For snapshots of today’s prize drawing, and a photo or two of just some of the donated goods, click here.
Kolb says another Laffle is likely this fall. It will probably be a repeat of the successful “pair and a spare” drive from last fall. That campaign collected clothing, school supplies and personal hygiene items that were forwarded to social workers in the Green Bay school system to distribute to needy students. Keep it in mind if you’re doing your own family’s back-to-school shopping this summer, she says, and buy a little extra if you can.
And the winners are…
Each person who donated an item to the Laffle received a ticket for a prize drawing. The individual whose name was drawn first at Monday’s closing celebration was faculty member Karen Dalke of Social Change and Development, who in turn got to make the No. 1 selection from prize list. She selected a hand-built Adirondack chair donated by Kolb and her husband and said it would be absolutely perfect next to her wildflower garden.
