Facebook pet groups had successful towel drive
The popular Facebook groups Real House Cats of Scripps Ranch and Real House Dogs of Scripps Ranch held a used towel drive to benefit the Humane Society.
This donation event featured a friendly competition at the unofficial dog park on Meanley Park on Jan. 12. The two groups donated to their preferred truck, cat or dog, to see which of the two trucks received the most donations. The competition resulted in a tie, ending in two full trucks worth of towels. Donations were also accepted privately prior to the event and over the weekend.
Group admin JL Nuss was thrilled with the coming together of the community.
“It was a great success in such a short amount of time. This community is so generous, with some big hearts.” she said.
One woman named Claudia even made blankets.
At least 10 trips with two rolling carts were required to deliver towels from the trucks to the donation site.
