In the spring of 2010, we signed up and were approved for an awesome
community event to inspire volunteerism in the Southern Nevada community.
In exchange for four hours of volunteering per person, each person was awarded a
free ticket to Disneyland Parks. The response was tremendous.
We designed three opportunities to fit every pet lover's availability.
We met some wonderful people, some of which are still with us to this day,
and still continued to go above and beyond to help Homeward Bound kitties.
This was the result:
45 volunteers signed up to help at the Adoption Centers,
37 volunteers signed up to do laundry,
21 volunteers signed up to make telephone calls,
863 volunteers signed up to donate handmade blankets for kitties
so HUNDREDS of blankets poured in from as far as SLC, Mesquite, and Pahrump.
Those that didn't meet our guidelines were donated in turn
to other area rescues so everyone ultimately won!
On Valentine's Day weekend we had a bake sale to raise money for our special needs kitties. We had 227 volunteers sign up to bake sweets and treats and we raised almost $800!
Leftovers were donated in turn to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.
