During the Auburn Christmas parade, the Auburn Tourism Commission paired up with Auburn Jr BETA Club to collect donations for the Logan County Humane Society. From having a booth at the parade to students traveling the streets to ask for donations, help for the animals was at the top of the list.
Sarah Moore of the commission said they wanted to do something to help the animals of Logan County and collecting donations of supplies seemed a great way to help.
According to Moore, supplies of all kinds were needed and it was exciting to find out that Auburn was so willing to help out by giving all proceeds from their Christmas Parade to them.
A mobile adoption unit was brought to the parade and had several dogs in the parade as well. BETA students held a supply drive at school during the month of December. All in all, the BETA Club collected over 100 items for the animals, which were presented on Dec. 21, 2015.
Mollie Crawford, a member of the Jr BETA Club said, “This gets the local kids involved in the community by helping. It is also a great way to work together to help animals in Logan County.”
One of the things we try to do at as tourism commission is to help out our community and to show support for those who live here.
“This is what a commission is all about,” said Moore. “The animals are a part of our community as well, and we wanted to assure they get the help they need. We are more than happy to have been able to help.”
