On behalf of the Payson Humane Society, we would like to thank the Rim Country community for your support of our Capital Campaign Building Fund.
Last week we kicked off this program with a mailer to the general public. Overwhelmed would be an understatement.
Since last Saturday and every day thereafter, our post office box has been brimming with your contributions. One 6-year-old young man sent the dollar bill he had placed under his pillow from the tooth fairy. A lady walked into the shelter and handed us a $10 money order from Circle K, apologizing for not being able to give more.
Hundreds and hundreds of you have sent $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $200 and more. One by one they are adding up.
A gentleman, wishing to remain anonymous walked in and handed us a check for $5,000. We received a phone call indicating that a lovely lady had just deposited $10,000 worth of a mutual fund directly into our building fund account with Edward Jones. Stories like these can go on and on.
Words cannot begin to describe the feelings of gratitude. Many tears are being shed. Tears of joy as we see the community expressing the desire we always knew in our hearts was there waiting to spill forth.
Last but not least, a huge thank you to Diane and Ed Enos of Post Net for their donation of the printing and developing of the mailer. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Please keep those cards and letters coming. Contributions for the building fund can be sent to the Payson Humane Society, P.O. Box 242, Payson, AZ 85547.
