After volunteering with her mother for a few months at the Tama County Humane Society, one local girl and her family decided to start a fundraiser with some very positive results.
Lily Jampoler, the 11-year-old daughter of Jennifer Smentek, wanted a way to raise money for the shelter. After talking it over with her uncle, Scott, it was decided that he would do a fundraising walk along the Lake Michigan shoreline with his dog, Yobie.
The family used Facebook to keep people up to date on the progress of the walk, which ended up raising over $555 for the shelter.
Scott Smentek and Lily Jampoler are pictured here presenting a check of the funds raised to Carlee Schultz of the Tama County Humane Society, along with some of the animals that these funds will help.
