(Bowling Green)—Several area children recently put their entrepreneurial talents to work to raise money for the Wood County Humane Society.
This past weekend, the six locals set up a lemonade stand at a garage sale in Bowling Green, raising a total of $77.23 in sales. All proceeds from the lemonade stand were donated to the Wood County Humane Society. The garage sale was held on Lorraine Street.
Organizers of the lemonade stand included Tyler Chaney, Lily Azzarello, Lindsey Chaney, Madison Carney, Shawn Carney, and Roman Azarello.
This is the second year in a row that these children have combined efforts to raise money for local animal charities. Last year, the children donated the earnings from their lemonade stand to the Toledo Area Humane Society.
The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a full-service, no-kill shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. In addition, the organization assists Wood County residents with its Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cats, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. The non-profit organization is funded predominantly through donations from local individuals and businesses, Community Shares of Northwest Ohio (a workplace giving campaign), and fundraisers. The Wood County Commissioners help fund a Humane Agent, but the organization receives no additional funding from national humane organizations, the United Way, or the government.
