Humane Society Hosts Rummage Sale

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 400 people attended the Broome County Humane Society's annual Rummage Sale this Saturday. Donations were accepted Friday and sold at the American Legion Post 80.

House ware, supplies, and other items were sold to reach a goal of $4,000 for the animals at the shelter. Kim Broderick, Fundraising Coordinator for the Humane Society, said she was impressed with the turnout of today's sale. 

"It was amazing, the amount of people that showed up, the amount of items that were donated was unbelievable. We've moved so much merchandise today. We got a little bit of everything for everybody." - Kim Broderick, Broome County Humane Society

The group receives no government funding and relies solely on donations and events like the rummage sale. Proceeds from today's event will go directly to animal care and finding the residents of the Humane Society forever homes.

"This is a family type of event, you have people of all ages coming out. Toddlers, grandparents, it's great to see." - Kim Broderick, Broome County Humane Society
