Volunteer Appreciation 2019

Annual Volunteer Celebration

About 100 people attended Tri-County Humane Society’s Volunteer Appreciation Party on June 27 at the Sauk Rapids Government Center. The event was TCHS’ chance to formally thank the people who help make it possible to give so many animals another chance at happiness. TCHS could not do what we do without their help.

TCHS wants to especially thank the following for helping make the party happen: the City of Sauk Rapids for donating the space to have the party; Erbert and Gerbert’s in downtown St. Cloud for donating party platters and sandwiches; Viking Coca-Cola for donating pop and water; Coborn’s in Sauk Rapids for donating ice; and more than a dozen area businesses that donated gift certificates as prizes to our top volunteers of the year.

Thank you so much for being a partner to TCHS!
