BRICK – A mum sale will be held as a fundraiser for the Jersey Shore Animal Shelter in Brick.
Pre-orders are required. They can be ordered online at jerseyshoreanimalcenter.org/mums4paws/ by September 30. The pick up is Thursday, Oct. 1 from 1- 4 p.m. or Friday, October 2, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be contact-free, curbside pick-up at the shelter, located at 185 Brick Blvd.
The cost is $8 for a 9” terracotta pot with the following colors: white, yellow, orange/rust, burgundy/red, light pink/purple. Another choice is $15 for a 12” hanging basket. The baskets are white, and the mums are in assorted colors. You can make a request on a specific color for the hanging baskets, but it is subject to availability.
“Each day we face challenges – some old, some new,” shelter officials said. “Sometimes we wonder how we are going to continue to help the homeless animals. Times have changed! Due to COVID-19, our fundraising efforts essentially shut down our traditional in-person fundraising. Please help us continue making a difference in our community and most of all for the homeless animals in our care. Please support us today at the same time getting your home ready for Fall.”
Mums are locally grown.
