The Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) is thrilled to announce receipt of a generous $45,000 grant from The Players Championship. This significant contribution will be utilized to purchase a dedicated vehicle for JHS, enhancing their capacity to deliver humane education outreach programs to the local community.
The focus of this outreach effort is to bring the joy of reading and the companionship of animals to children in local schools and afterschool nonprofit programs via Pawsitive Reading, the program currently offered at the JHS campus.
The vehicle’s first stop was to deliver new books to youth at the MaliVai Washington Youth Fund Center along with a visit from a Dudley, a mixed breed dog who was adopted from JHS. Children took turns reading their new books to Dudley, who delighted in hearing the stories! The books were made possible from a generous grant from The Jim Moran Foundation, which also helps fund educational outreach at the Jacksonville Humane Society.
