Dear Bird Center Supporter:
Hope this email finds you well and surviving this most recent blast of cold weather. I am quite sure the almost incapacitated squirrels were communicating that this was on the way so it should be no surprise.
As of 10-31-14, the Mary Street location was closed for the season and cleaned up thoroughly to make way for the election the next week. We had birds that found homes with willing volunteers for future release dates depending on weather, need, medication regime. We continue to field calls and assist on our help lines as much as possible. If this winter is as difficult as last winter, we will be busy giving advice and offering help with birds that are suffering the conditions.
Although the Mary St. is closed for the season, we have different ways that you can help us out if you chose to that may help you out as well. We are working on an online shopping site of our own which we hope to launch soon- proceeds will benefit Bird Center of Washtenaw County and there will be great items.
Also, if you are doing any online shopping, please think of the Bird Center of Washtenaw County if you use the following:
– Amazon.com …… sign up for Amazon Smile and select us as the charity
– Goodshop.com………… select our name as the charity to support
– Goodsearch.com………..select our name as the charity to support
It is easy to do this and it really helps us out without costing you anything. This is a time of year when many of us are spending much more time and money shopping online, so please think of us before you complete your purchase.
And as always, one of most productive programs has been with Kroger. It has been a good deal for those who have signed up to get the card and discounts on groceries, and we also get discounts on products as well as support from Kroger. So please remember to renew your Kroger card each May.
Thank you for another wonderful season at the Bird Center, we could not keep it going without your support.
The Bird Center of Washtenaw County Inc
