Some of our biggest supporters are also our youngest! Every month children of all ages donate their allowances and dedicate their birthday’s to helping animals in need. Getting children involved in their local shelter is a great way to instill compassion and a sense of civic duty and community responsibility into even our youngest supporters.
To make it even easier to help animals in need we are giving away free piggy banks while supplies last! These piggy banks are printed with our organization’s information and are perfect for your home or classroom. Once the banks are filled bring them into the shelter to drop off your donations and meet some of the animals you will be helping. If you are with a service group or class, call ahead and you can even arrange a behind the scenes tour with one of our friendly staff!
You can pick up your free piggy bank at the shelter at 402 Bryant Street in Ojai. They come in a variety of colors and are re-usable. “They are a great way to teach your children about saving money and charitable giving,” said Greg Cooper, Director of Community Outreach for the HSVC.
