presented organization with a $1,000 check
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Friends For Animals Sanctuary (FFAS) received a check for $1,000 from the Space Coast Tri Delta Alumnae Chapter.
Funds will help further development at the Judith and Don Moliter Sanctuary Campus in Cocoa, Florida, a safe place for abandoned, injured and abused domestic animals to rehabilitate and learn how to be members of loving forever homes.
FFAS board members and Tri Delta members are discussing ways to memorialize the sorority’s gift with naming options.
Katherine Johnson, founder and president of FFAS said, “We met some of the members of Tri Delta at our Bling Night at the Sanctuary Thrift Shoppe. We are honored they think so much of our organization that they would contribute so generously to it.”
“Tri Delta supports a national philanthropy through St. Jude’s. We decided to get involved in our local charities too,” Lacey Robbins said. “The members chose FFAS and Nemours Wuestoff.”
She said the donation to FFAS is not a one-time gift.
“We are looking at this long term, as just the beginning of partnerships. We believe you make more of a difference long term.”
FFAS recently held a private groundbreaking ceremony on the 17.6-acre tract of land that is to be the Judith and Don Moliter Sanctuary Campus in Cocoa, Florida.
Plans are underway to remove non-native, invasive plants prior to beginning construction.
Johnson said, “With community neighbors making donations like the members of Tri Delta, the Sanctuary gets closer to completion every day. I’m anxious for the day I can announce that we have provided sanctuary to our first domestic animals.”
