JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WJHL) – The David Crockett High School Choral Department came together to make a donation worth more than $1300 to the Unicoi County Animal Shelter.
At their fall concert the chorus decided to ditch the need for spectators to buy tickets. Instead, they asked everyone to bring a bag of cat litter or laundry detergent for the shelter.
60 containers of detergent and 45 containers of litter were collected. They also raised $900 for the shelter.
Shelter director Kevin King says donations like these keep the shelter running.
“It was such a wonderful surprise for us. We rely on donations for so much and we are so thankful they helped us,” says King.
