We have a very exciting list of fundraising events on tap for this year. Check out the events and dates below and if any of these events catch your eye and you’d like to help with them give us a call. We will need event staff, kitchen help for some events, clean-up staff, donated items for prizes and goodie bags or event t-shirts. If you or any area companies would be interested in event sponsorships we would love to talk to you about that as well. Call us at the shelter, 1-419-562-9149, and we’ll set up a time to discuss these volunteer options with you.
