Coin Collecting Challenge Assists Shelters in Shenandoah
October 5, 2019
SHENANDOAH VALLEY – The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals organizations located across the Shenandoah Valley are teaming up for a fundraising event in late October.
The SPCA of Winchester, Frederick and Clarke Counties, in conjunction with the Humane Society of Warren County will compete in a coin collecting challenge on Oct. 25-26. They are calling for supporters from the local communities to visit any City National Bank to deposit coins for said local shelters. Each competing shelter will keep the donated coins, plus the winner of the challenge will receive a $250 prize from City National Bank.
“No matter which shelter you support, animals win,” Executive Director of HSWC Meghan Bowers said.
The individual, family, business and school that raises the most money will receive special recognition from the organizations participating. Supplies for anyone who wants to compete in the coin collecting challenge are available at each respective shelter. If you or a group that you know would like to compete but cannot make it out to a City National Bank on Oct. 25-26, you can drop off coins to your local shelter in advance of the competition window.
Funds raised during the competition will go towards the ongoing care of shelter animals. Each shelter and HSWC are no-kill shelters. They serve over 3,000 homeless, abused and abandoned animals annually.
