Community Events Supporting GMHS
Fifth Annual Dog Days of Summer
From Dogs Days of Summer Coordinator Denise Hutchins, Facilitator of Fun, Brent and Becky's:
The Dog Days of Summer have arrived! For the fifth year in a row, area businesses have joined forces offering an incentive to their customers as well as supporting GMHS. The warm summer months are a time when the shelter sees less donations coming in (and even more so during a pandemic) but still has the need to feed and nurture the numerous animals in their care. We have had to pivot a bit from the way this has been offered in the past, but feel it will be a great promotion encouraging the community to make a donation and have a chance to win a prize package from local participating businesses.
Throughout the month of August, participating businesses will promote the #FiveDollarFriday fundraiser for GMHS offered through the GMHS Facebook page. Anyone who donates will be entered to win a prize package being offered weekly. The following business are participating in this year’s Dog Days of Summer #FiveDollarFriday promotion are The Inn at Warner Hall, Brent and Becky’s, Village Cleaners, Chesapeake Marine Training Institute, Jellystone Campground, and CA&J Farm.
Donate $5 or $50, all donations will be accepted! Donate one Friday or every Friday, each donation will result in being entered to win the prize package being offered that week. The animals appreciate your help, and so do we!
Masks will be required during the performance, and tables will be spaced to practice social distancing throughout the evening.
