April was a busy month – we added a few more dog and cat clients to our Big Red’s Buddies (BRB) and Rody’s Pals (RP) programs; had a Panda Express fundraiser; launched our new Newsletter and got organized for the upcoming shoe drive.
We also handed the reins of the Rody’s Pals program to a new Program Director (long time volunteer – Judy Kukuruza) whose passion for helping the Homeless is boundless, and whose ability to stretch our donations and budget dollars is just miraculous!
The 2015-2016 Directory is now available for Kindle on Amazon (http://amzn.to/24yGFcT) and we plan to get the new 2017 completed and available for Kindle as well. Stay tuned, we’ll let you know when!
