Far Point Animal Rescue Benefit Yard Sale

Posted by Kelley Conrad on

We at Pompeii Street Soap Co. are pleased to announce that we raised $1,115.97 at our recent yardsale to benefit Far Point Animal Rescue in Port Trevorton, PA. 

As any business owner knows, you can accumulate a lot of stuff that no longer serves your business and takes up valuable space. We spent two weeks scouring every nook and cranny of the shop looking for these items and getting them ready for the yard sale. With the help of our wonderful yard sale volunteer, Willene Kanasky, we marked and organized a huge quantity of items. We were shocked and pleased that we were able to raise over $1000 for Far Point. We knew we had a lot of "junk", but we had no idea it would be worth this much for this fine organization. 

We chose Far Point Animal Rescue for the good work they do with horses and other animals in our area. While there are many rescues in the area that focus on dogs and cats, Far Point works with the many aged and discarded horses that also need love. These horses have offered many of wonderful opportunities to the volunteers and often provide silent, loving therapy for those who are troubled. We would like you to encourage all of you to check out Far Point and read some of the stories they share about their horses and volunteers. 


We are glad that we could contribute in this small way to the fine work the Far Point Animal Rescue does for all types of animals. Please consider helping them in whatever small way you can.
