PAST EVENTS

2022 SUPPLY DRIVE FOR LOCAL
LICENSED WILDLIFE REHABILITATORS

MAY 1 - MAY 31, 2022
(see drop-off locations below)

Friends of Wildlife at the Lake is hosting a supply drive benefiting the amazing rehabbers who rehabilitate our local wildlife. Rehabbing wildlife is expensive and most rehabbers rely on donations to cover the cost. Our group recently reached out to them and here are the items they said they need most: fleece or flannel blankets, receiving blankets, pillowcases, towels with no holes, bleach, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, blue Dawn dish soap, triple antibiotic ointment, plain tissues (no lotion), old t-shirts or sweatpants, paper towels, puppy pads, and Nirvana Ridge Wildlife Refuge also has an Amazon wish list under that name.

Supplies will be collected until the end of May and can be dropped off at 103 Monticello (look for the plastic tub on the porch or by the garage), 100 Queenwood (front porch), 1114 Lakeview (front porch)
