Wood Co. Humane Society accepting donations for fundraiser

WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) – The Wood County Humane Society is accepting donations for one of its largest fundraisers of the year, a garage sale at the Wood County fairgrounds.

The garage sale isn't until this weekend, but tables are already full of clothes, books, and just about every item you can imagine. The humane society says it depends on this fundraiser to run its local animal shelter.

People can still donate items for the garage sale. Volunteers are accepting items all day Wednesday. The event begins Thursday morning at 9, and goes through Saturday morning.

The Wood County Humane Society says it's expecting a big turnout. Volunteers are even giving prizes to the first 150 people at the garage sale. The organization says it's hoping to raise at least $10,000.

All proceeds will go toward taking care of animals, maintaining the shelter, and paying staff.

"If you're going to donate, it's a really good way to recycle for a good cause, rather than just throw it out.  You know, if you got something useful, some people don't want to bother with a garage sale or they don't want to throw it out or anything like that, you know you can donate," said Joe Schroeder of the Wood County Humane Society.

The Wood County Humane Society says all donations are tax deductible.
