WILLISTON, VT - Lenny's Shoe & Apparel donated over 400 pet supplies to the Humane Society of Chittenden County this morning. This donation was made possible on behalf of Lenny's generous customers through a clever coin-drop game which raised $860.45. That donation translated into 114-pounds of Wellness dog food, 40-pounds of Wellness cat food, 28-pounds of peanut butter, 8 dog Kongs, 96 cat toys, 270 trash bags and 7 containers of dish detergent.
“This is the second year in a row that we've donated to the Humane Society of Chittenden County during the holidays,” said Marc LeBlanc, Co-Manager at Lenny's. “We are all big animal lovers here at the Williston store and are happy to be able to fulfill some of the animals needs from the online wishlist during this season of giving.”
To kick off the New Year, Lenny's will continue their effort to support the Humane Society of Chittenden County. Visit the Williston store in Tafts Corner Plaza this January to play the coin-drop game. All donations will go directly towards the care and comfort of the animals at the Humane Society.
“The Humane Society is thankful for the generosity of Lenny's Shoe & Apparel and their awesome customers,” said Megan Stearns, Director of Development and Outreach at the Humane Society. “With no government funding, we rely on community support to care for the 80 or so animals living in our facility each and every day.”
