Residents of Stonecroft Apartments in Hagerstown recently collected items for the animals at the Humane Society of Washington County. On Dec. 7, they donated those items to the shelter.

"The residents were really excited about doing this collection drive again," said Margaret Fishack, social services coordinator at Stonecroft Apartments. "This is the second year they have done this collection, and they were asking about it back in October."

The residents' generosity was evident as two carts were wheeled out to the shelter vehicle. In addition to toys, treats and food for the animals, the residents also donated a book of stamps and $20 in cash.

"This is just so nice of the Stonecroft residents," said Paul Miller, executive director of the humane society. "It is just in time, too, as our Home for the Holidays adoption promotion campaign is in full swing and we are trying to make folks aware of the wonderful adoptable animals we have at the shelter."

Anyone interested in helping with the adoption promotion may contact Ben Cross at the shelter.
