      UPAWS to hold annual rummage sale

      The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is getting ready for their fifth annual rummage sale this weekend.

      All of the proceeds go to u-paws operations and support the animals. Items in the rummage sale were all donated by people wanting to support the shelter. The shelter hopes to make $7,000 from the sale.

      "UPAWS is a non-profit, which means that we run entirely on donations and to care for the animals it can really add up and become expensive so we like to do these other fundraisers to kind of supplement our support," says UPAWS manager Loreina Vanstrien. "It's kind of a fun way to get out in the community and to meet the people that want to support us."

      The sale opens Friday and runs through Sunday, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

      It's located on US-41 in South Harvey next to Trudell Plumbing and Heating. UPAWS will also hold sales in August and September.
