Local owners of Giant Tiger, Andrew and Diane Lewis, are continually contributing to local charities and once again came through for the Orangeville SPCA.

The SPCA is a not-for-profit organization funded primarily by public donations, and representative Calla Spencer says, “we are especially grateful to Giant Tiger for once again supporting animals in need, with all of the funds being used mostly for vet expenses for the animals who need spayed, neutered, micro-chipped and, in some cases, surgery.”

Giant Tiger held their annual Paw Prints campaign and once again topped the previous years’ amount and were able to donate $3,186 in total, along with pillows and blankets that will be used for bedding at the shelter.

“This is an organization that is close to my heart and we have adopted pets from them in the past,” says Diane Lewis. “We held the Paw Prints campaign to raise funds as well as staff luncheons and bake sales to raise all the funds that we are donating today, with our cashier Ethel collecting the most money for this campaign.”

As of late, Giant Tiger has been busy donating to various organizations throughout the community, with their Angel Tree Fundraiser which saw $2,700 raised, and split between the Shelburne Police Stuff a Cruiser Event, and the Shelburne and District Firefighters Associations Annual Toy and Non-Perishable food drive.

Prior to that, Giant Tiger also hosted Operation Santa, which sent packages overseas to vets serving our country.

Its businesses like Giant Tiger that make living in a small town so wonderful. Seeing how generously they continue to give back to the community truly is a blessing.
