PLAINFIELD, NJ — Local organizations are stepping up this holiday season to collect needed items for the non-profit Plainfield Area Humane Society, in operation since 1933.  The group's income comes from donations, animal control service contracts, adoption fees, fund-raisers, bequests, grants and corporate gifts, according to its website.

The non-profit Netherwood Heights Neighbors group is seeking supplies that are needed now by the humane society.  Donations of the requested items will be matched with a $1 gift, up to $250, to PAHS, thanks to Jill, John and Ian Fraser.  Here is a look at what's needed:

  • Cat toys and soft cat treats
  • Cat/kitten food that is dry/unopened
  • Cat litter
  • Pee/training pads
  • Soft dog treats
  • Paper towels/bleach
  • Garbage bags (tall/contractor)
  • Nitrite gloves, medium and large sizes
  • Large storage bins with secured, sealed lids

Items can be dropped at the home of the Frasers, on the front step at 747 Dixie Lane, through Dec. 21.  Donations are tax-deductible; leave your name and email address with your donation and the Netherwood Neighbors group will send you a letter confirming your contribution.
