Local Community Fund Raises Over $14k for Campbell County

(Gillette, Wyo.) Earlier this month, the Northeast Wyoming REALTOR Alliance donated $500 to Fur Kids Foundation from its Community Outreach Fund, to be used to help local families with pets with emergency veterinary costs. 

"This Alliance has always held a great interest in the well-being of our community," said Mary Melaragno, Fur Kids Foundation president and founder. "We are thrilled to receive this donation from them, and will use it to further our mission of helping local families with pets afford emergency veterinary costs."

This is the fourth year that Fur Kids Foundation has applied and received money from the Community Outreach Fund. Since 2009, the Alliance has granted $108,000 from its Community Outreach Fund to 26 Campbell County organizations. 

This year the brokers, agents, and affiliate members in the Realtor Alliance donated $14,700 to ten local non-profits, including the Women's Resource Center, Gillette Abuse Refuge Foundation, Second Chance Ministries, and the YES House.
