HUMANE SOCIETY-TURNAROUND
(2007-01-22)
(wgvu) - REVAMPED MANAGEMENT AND A PLEA FOR
HELP WITH DONATIONS HAVE ALLOWED A BATTLE CREEK HUMANE SOCIETY
SHELTER TO STAGE A DRAMATIC TURNAROUND.
SINCE TAKING OVER AS DIRECTOR LAST YEAR, JIM RICHMOND HAS
REORGANIZED THE ORGANIZATION OF ELEVEN EMPLOYEES, TRIMMING
30-THOUSAND DOLLARS IN EXPENSES. THE SHELTER HAD ACCUMULATED A
COMBINED DEFICIT OF NEARLY 240-THOUSAND DOLLARS AND A CAPITAL
CAMPAIGN THAT LANGUISHED BEHIND ITS GOAL.
IN NOVEMBER, THE ORGANIZATION SUCCESSFULLY PLEADED FOR HELP IN
RAISING 30-THOUSAND DOLLARS BY YEAR'S END TO PAY BILLS.
THE SHELTER WILL NOW BE RENOVATED. IT STARTED THE NEW YEAR BY
CHANGING ITS NAME TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF SOUTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN
TO REFLECT ITS EXPANDED SERVICE AREA.
