Humane Society of West Michigan (HSWM) has won the Grand Rapids Gem competition, organized by Grand Rapids-based Craft-Revival Jewelers. As a result of earning 65 percent of the public vote on grandrapidsgem.com, HSWM earned $6,640.
“We are truly honored and ecstatic to be the winner of this exciting competition,” said Trudy Ender, executive director of the Humane Society of West Michigan. “We currently have 300 animals at our shelter and these funds will be used directly for their care. As a 100-percent donor-funded organization, donations like this are vital and we couldn’t care for our animals without the community support.”
