Ivy Tech Student Government Association to Collect Funds for Harvey Dogs in Warrick County

The Student Government Association at Ivy Tech Community College is collecting funds from Tuesday, Sept. 12 through Tuesday, Sept. 26, for the Warrick County Humane Society who will be receiving dogs from Texas animal shelters.

“We understand that these dogs were already housed in animal shelters in Texas, so they can make room for more dogs that have been separated from their owners. That way, they will be closer to home to possibly be reunited with their owners,” said Courtney Taber, vice president of SGA.

Checks may be made out to the Warrick Humane Society, and delivered to the Business Affairs Office at Ivy Tech Community College, 3501 N. First Avenue, Evansville. “If individuals would like to make donations other than check or cash, they should take them to the Warrick Humane Society at 5722 S. Vann Rd., Newburgh,” said SGA President Sahib Sooch.

Earlier this month, the Student Government Association collected baby items for individuals affected by Hurricane Harvey.

For additional information, please contact Sahib Sooch at 707-567-1416 or Courtney Taber at 812-213-6480.
