Melissa Bennett of the Herkimer Humane Society accepts a $559 check, the proceeds from Barringer Road’s Candy Cane Sale.

Barringer Road Elementary held a candy cane sale this December to help raise funds for the Herkimer Humane Society. The students sold 2,236 candy canes for 25 cents each—$559 raised for the dogs and cats at the shelter. Melissa Bennett of the Herkimer Humane Society graciously accepted the check from the students. The money raised will go a long way to help meet the needs of the animals currently housed at the shelter. The Barringer community stepped up to provide a happy holiday for their four-legged friends.
