LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Our local animal shelters are always in need and every little bit helps.

For the week of Aug. 22 - Aug. 26, WILX News 10 is partnering with the Capital Area Humane Society and Jackson County Animal Shelter, sponsored by Dowding Industries and Tommy’s Express Car Wash, for our News 10 Make an Impact campaign. All week long, we’ll be collecting the below supplies for the shelters at the WILX Studios (500 American Road, Lansing).

We will end the week with a phone bank on Friday. During our newscasts from 4:30 a.m. until 7 a.m., 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., call 517-346-8822 to make a donation.

And don’t forget; Animals need homes all year round! If you’re thinking of adopting, visit your local animal shelter to see how you can provide a home for a loving pet.

Together we can Make an Impact!
