Thanks to an article in the Osceola News Gazette and a simple request from our Thriving In Place office, members and volunteers provided the Celebration Foundation’s Thriving In Place program an opportunity to donate seven bags of towels to SNiP-it.

SNiP-it is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is, to provide the residents of Central Florida with humane solutions to the pet overpopulation problem through education and by offering low cost spay/neuter services.”

The article in the Osceola News Gazette informed us of the towel drive SNiP-it was hosting.  Quoting the article, ““They are scared and if you put a towel or blanket in the cage, they can have some comfort and burrow into it,” says Sharon Smith, Director of Volunteers for Community Impact. “You can drape them on the cage, too, for comfort and security.””

It’s through efforts like this that we can fulfill our mission at the Celebration Foundation of building better community. Thank you to all the participants in the towel drive. You are much appreciated from our new furry friends.
