COMMERCE - Tanger Outlets in Commerce has announced they will be aiding several north Georgia humane societies.<br />
Through the month of July, the shopping center will be conducting a supply drive benefitting the Humane Society of Jackson County, Leftover Pets in Winder and the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia.<br />
Pet food, old newspapers, rubber toys, paper towels, plastic shopping bags and other items can be dropped off at the office of the shopping center office during business hours.<br />
"Part of our objective with this drive is not only to help our area shelters," said Mark Valentine, Tanger General Manager in Commerce, "but also to bring attention to the hundreds of abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted animals biding their time in pounds, shelters and rescue groups, waiting for that second chance for love and security."<br />
