The Westport Humane Society has taken some hits lately — right here on “06880.”
So it’s nice to hear this story from alert reader Lori Cochran, director of the Westport Farmers’ Market.
Lori also volunteers at the Humane Society. Staff members there know the Market collects food for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission and Westport Gillespie Center.
Mindy wondered if the Humane Society could harvest them for donation to the Bridgeport Rescue Mission at the Thursday Farmers’ Market.
Could they? Of course!
“How cool, right?” Lori writes.
“At a time when every non-profit is looking inward at how they will survive, the Humane Society thought about how it can help others. To me, that is the definition of community.”
And, Lori notes, there are no rabbits at the shelter now. So no bunnies were harmed in the making of this donation.
