Wyalusing Elementary School Donates to BCHS

Beginning in February, for 2 weeks, the Wyalusing Elementary School in conjunction with the Relay For Life committee in Wyalusing held a fundraiser to support the Bradford County Humane Society and Relay for Life. Over 800 students, parents, and teachers helped to raise a total of over $10,000. This was a huge success. $5,326.30 was donated to BCHS to assist with the general care of the animals at the shelter.

Angie Wildrick from Wyalusing Elementary, her daughter Lydia, her son RJ, and Relay For Life Committee members assisted with the fundraiser. Angie and her family have been supporters of BCHS for quite some time and have helped at various special events and fundraisers.

“When Angie Wildrick from the Wyalusing Elementary school told me that they had raised such a huge amount I was so amazed. This is the kind of support that truly makes me feel so happy for our animals in need. These funds will help with the cost of vet bills, pet food, supplies and the care of our shelter animals,”states Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS Community Coordinator.

BCHS is working on a date in the Springtime to visit the school and talk about the shelter as well as the proper way to care for pets and livestock.
