The Wyalusing United Methodist Church Sunday school children chose to donate money they have been collecting since January to Bradford County Humane Society (BCHS). Christine Heyman, a longtime volunteer for BCHS expressed the appreciation of BCHS, and explained to the children and attendees of the church service that they are a no kill shelter, and therefore all the animals they have stay with the shelter until they are adopted.
Some of the congregation expressed surprise, and pleasure to find that Bradford County Humane Society had become a no kill shelter years ago (in 2012). Christine also told them they can use volunteers anytime, and that children are very welcome, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult until the age of sixteen.
Gene Ann Woodruff observed that BCHS volunteer, Christine Heyman, used to be in the Sunday school there, and further encouraged Sunday school students to volunteer in the future.
Many members of the church made additional monetary donations and donations of food litter and toys. Pastor Heather Baker McAllister said she hoped the money would help the animals find loving homes when closing the service.
