10 Oct Thank you Bob Found and Barbara Wilkes for your SPCA Donation!
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and congratulate Mr. Bob Found and Mrs. Barbara Wilkes who earlier this summer held two garage sales in support of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or the SPCA..
Bob and Barbara organized residents of Indian Harbour to gather together their collectables and antiques, then held two weekends of garage sales during July. When customers learned where the money earned from the sales was destined, many decided to donate their potential change. The total amount that Mr. Found and Mrs. Wilkes donated was over $1,100.
The SPCA will put the donated funds toward their four pillars of service which include animal rescue, shelter, veterinary care and rehabilitation. Funds from this yard sale, as well as all donations, are a vital part of the operations of this worthy Association.
Mr. Speaker, I invite the members of the House of Assembly to join me in recognizing, congratulating and thanking Mr. Bob Found and Mrs. Barbara Wilkes for their generous support of the Nova Scotia SPCA.
