Weis Markets is partnering with local shelters and rescue agencies through May 26 for its third annual Paws for Pets food supply and donation drive. 

The Weis Market on Eastern Boulevard at the corner of Dual Highway and Eastern Boulevard is collecting donations for the Humane Society of Washington County. 

Bracelets will be sold at the registers for $1, with all proceeds benefitting the animal shelter. 

Weis employees will sell $1, $3 and $5 vouchers for those who do not want a bracelet but would like to contribute to the shelter.  

A designated shopping cart will be in the front of the store for customers who would like to donate food and supplies to the shelter. A wish list will be posted in the animal-supply aisle.
