Help for the Humane Society

Terri extended her thanks to everyone who donated to the drive.

Department of Human Services staffers once again showed our generosity in supporting a drive initiated by an AmeriCorps Knowledge to Empower Youth to Success (KEYS) member to benefit the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society.

Terri Winaught, who mentors and tutors students at Computing Workshop in Squirrel Hill, approached Aaron Gray, assistant manager of KEYS, about taking up a drive of items needed to care for dogs at the shelter. The January collection at the Human Service Building, One Smithfield St., Downtown, and at the Computing Workshop yielded more than Terri could’ve dreamed.

“My gosh, we got so many bags of toys, treats, food and towels that we filled the backseat of the car,” said Terri, whose supervisor at the workshop, Mary Hart, walks dogs at the shelter on the North Side. “We got enough toys, specifically, that every single dog in the shelter got a toy.”
