January collection at the Human Service Building, One Smithfield St., Downtown,

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.”
