The Hampton Bays Public Library’s Children’s Room and Teen Department are collaborating on a fundraiser that will benefit the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.
From now until Friday, October 25, patrons are encouraged to go in and sponsor a shelter animal. There’s a binder for cats and dogs in both the kids’ and teens’ departments. Sponsors need to pledge to raise at least $10 but, of course, they can raise more. And in appreciation, sponsors will receive a bracelet with their animal’s name on it.
Additionally, when children and teens in fifth through the 12th grades raise $10 or more, they will be able to attend a party featuring a deejay, dessert, crafts and an animal trainer. How cool is that? Stop by the library on Ponquogue Avenue and check it out.
