Thousands raised for local animal shelter
OCEAN CITY, Md. – Hundreds of people hit the boardwalk in Ocean City this morning with their furry friends in an effort to raise money for the Worcester County Humane Society Saturday morning.
This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the society. The event raises upwards of $25,000 annually. Money that can go a long way toward helping with the every day operations at the humane society.
We caught up with one local sixth grader who tells us she spent 15 hours making bath bombs and selling them to raise money for the event.
“I always have a huge heart for animals, and I feel like they deserve a chance and everybody should be helping them,” said Berlin Intermediate School student Marley Noonan.
The Worcester County Humane Society tells us they’re always looking for donations. They say things like litter, food, paper towels, and bleach go a long way in helping them out.
