And donations are coming in quickly!

Thank You's go out to Saranac Area Women's Club, Saranac Community Schools, and a local Girl Scout Pack for bringing in boxes and bags of donations!

We also thank Grand River Rover Rescue for calling in a pledge of travel sized toothpaste.  I will be meeting up with them to pick of the cases later this week!  And this will go great with the toothbrushes and dental floss sticks that we have also received in cases!
