Humane Society holds supply drive July 29

By: Staff Report

LUMBERTON — A “Christmas in July” cleaning supply drive will be held at the end of this month to benefit the Robeson County Humane Society.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 29 at Lowes Food, located at 5075 Fayetteville Road in Lumberton.

Housing about 50 animals at any given time, the animal shelter goes through a lot of cleaning supplies. The shelter’s wish list includes cat litter, trash bags, dish soap, laundry detergent, bleach and paper towels. Items bought at the store can be left there under the “Christmas in July” tree at the store.

The drive has become a “main provider” for the cleaning supplies the shelter needs, said Jason Britt, supply drive organizer. Supplies collected at the last drive lasted about five months.
