Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society board members and staff say they were thrilled to have recently received a check for $8,500 from the GFWC Ladies Reading Circle and Somo Sala Circle.

CIP raised through the efforts of the community sponsorship of the Celebration of Tables which, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was canceled only a few days before it was to be held. The ladies completed a survey of members and sponsors and found the table sponsors agreed to go ahead and donate to the shelter anyway in spite of the cancellation.

MHHS oard members said, “Once again we are overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity of this wonderful group of women of the Ladies Reading and Somo Sala Reading Circle-CIP and the community involvement to help care for the animals through the Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society.”

The funds raised are earmarked for building an outside enrichment play area for dogs and inside enrichment area for cats shelter.
