On Valentine’s Day, five members of Team Dogeared gave something even better than flowers and candy—they volunteered their time at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Gardena! The ReStore sells new and used home furnishings and building materials to the public at great discounts. As volunteers, our team organized and moved merchandise to the sales floor and assisted customers. A big thank you to Francine, Irene, Deanna, Jackie & Markeesa for participating!
Dogeared team-member Alex, a major animal advocate, organized a donation drive to help support the L.A. County Animal Shelter in Downey—recognized as the most overpopulated shelter in the country. Thanks to generous contributions from the team, Alex was able to raise $300 in only one week! She used the money to purchase food, fleece blankets, toys and grooming supplies for the shelter animals.
