Hey, Ho, Come to the Fair!
Once again, it’s time for the University of Washington Combined Fund Drive! We would love to see you at the Charity Fair on Wednesday, October 10. Please drop by our table in the shiny new HUB’s North Ballroom for the Charity Fair–we’d be delighted to see you and show you our latest cats and kittens seeking homes.
Can’t come to the fair but want to support Friends of Campus Cats? Just go to the UWCFD’s website and make a donation; any amount is welcomed. Our charity code is 0330528.
