Lycoming SPCA sets out to raise $20,000

A national day of generosity, Giving Tuesday, non-profits around the nation hold fundraisers for 24 hours, and that is no exception for the Lycoming County SPCA. By midnight on Tuesday, Dec. 3, the Lycoming SPCA has a goal to raise $20,000, which could be “a game changer” for the local shelter, said Christa Watson, director of development at the Lycoming County SPCA.

Setting out to raise $20,000, the SPCA also will have $7,750 in matched funds from Pennsylvania Skill by Miele Manufacturing and a friend of the SPCA, Watson said. In addition, the SPCA will waive “an animal’s adoption fee for every five recurring gifts pledged.”

In 2018, the Lycoming County SPCA raised $13,000 and had $2,500 in matched funds.

Leading up to Giving Tuesday the SPCA has been sharing daily adoption stories on their website about the work they have done this year to make an impact on homeless animals lives in Lycoming County, Watson said.

“We could not do this without the generous support of donors. We are privately funded and rely fully on funds from events like this,” Watson said. “No matter the amount it all makes a lasting difference in the lives of homeless animals.”
