Volunteer of the Month: Laura Miller
The Fur Kids Foundation board of directors want to give a huge shout out to Laura Miller as the June 2017 Volunteer of the Month!
This is the third time that Laura has been recognized as FKF’s volunteer of the month—once in March 2016 and another in January 2017. Laura has been a crafty crocheter this year helping raise money with Cancer Crochet—as of June 30, this fundraiser has raised more than $1,253! It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas or other holidays and special events. Cancer Crochet is less than $800 from their goal of $2,000 to raise for FKF by the end of the year! Thank you to Laura (and Mika) for crocheting their little hearts out to raise so much money for FKF.
But that’s not all! Laura reached out to the Board in June to see if we’d like to have a booth during Wright Days, and she agreed to pay for the vendor fee, and sit at the booth for the entire show! Even better, nearly $200 was raised that day—so, not only did FKF get some exposure in Wright, Wyoming, but also received donations!
Laura has also graciously agreed to help with the organization of the Watermelon Eating Contest that FKF is hosting during the Campbell County Fair on August 5. Stay tuned for more information on this!
