Collection deadline extended

Lauren Anema has extended the deadline for her Girl Scout project, “Care for Animals and They Will Care for You” for one more week.

According to a press release, “the animal collection drive will benefit abused and abandoned animals in the area, while bringing our community together to help these animals. Collection boxes are at Tractor Supply Co., Three Oaks Pet Resort LLC, Uptown Coffee Café, Four Paws Bed and Biscuit, LLC and Southern States Farmers Cooperative, until Saturday.”

Items needed include pet food, bedding, newspaper, toys “and any other items that would be helpful to these animals that can be left in the collection box. All donations will be given to our local SPCA. Please call … Anema at (434) 390-9706 with any questions.”
