Est. Read Time: < 1 min

A Hellertown resident is working hard to help brighten the holidays for area residents–and even pets–in need. Amy Campbell-Musser is collecting donations for both the Center for Animal Health and Welfare–a no-kill animal shelter in Williams Township–and Safe Harbor Homeless Shelter in Easton. She will deliver the donations to both organizations before Christmas, as she has done in years past. Campbell-Musser said the Center for Animal Health and Welfare needs clean
blankets, towels, sheets, pillowcases, wash cloths, dog and cat beds, pillows, bleach, all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, dish soap, paper towels, dry food for dogs and cats (Purina One is the preferred cat food but the center will certainly accept other types), wet cat food, cat litter (which is often in short supply), cat treats, toys and monetary donations. The Center for Animal Health and Welfare also has a wish list posted on Amazon Prime.
