Recently published in the news was a story of the Alliston & District Humane Society, who is hosting a Walk-a-Thon in June to raise funds. Sadly, the Humane Society was recently robbed of over $5,000 in event donations, prize items, and pet supplies.
Given the Wolfe Pack's passion for helping animals, and helping local community efforts, it was without hesitation that we said YES! when the Alliston Humane Society reached out to us for help.
And so, a package of Wolfe Co. gear went out to Alliston today in an effort to make sure that the Walk-a-Thon is as successful a fundraiser as it was planned to be! Two lucky winners at the Walk-a-Thon will be receiving sweaters, sweatpants, t-shirts, and a variety of Wolfe Co. accessories. If you cannot attend the Alliston Walk-a-Thon, but would like to show your support, you may contribute online here. Other donations are also welcome, such as prizes for the event, or pet supplies for daily shelter operations. For a list of items most urgently needed, please click here.
Although misfortune is never welcome, it is in times like these that we are provided the perspective to realize or remember just how special our community is. That people can come together, support one another, and unite under a common cause...well, that's what being Canadian is at its finest, isn't it?
