Jane Monteforte Memorial Walk Raises $1800 For Area Animal SheltersMay 28th, 2012 | By HV Insider | Category: General Interest
On April 28th, Saw Creek Estates Community Association (SCE), Inc., sponsored a memorial walk in honor of their past resident, Jane Monteforte. The event raised more than $1,800 for various local animal shelters. Over 150 people participated in the walk to uphold Jane’s mission to help neglected and abused animals in the Bushkill, Pennsylvania area.
Jane Monteforte was a SCE employee, community member, and a dedicated animal lover. She volunteered countless hours with rescue and foster organizations in an effort to enrich the lives of animals in need. Monies collected through donations and a baked goods sale benefited the Monroe Animal League and the Pike County Humane Society. Also, approximately 130 pet related items, such as food, towels, and toys, were collected for the Animal Welfare Society of Monroe (AWSOM) and the Bushkill Outreach’s Pet Food Shelf. Participants walked a 2.5 mile loop around the SCE community in Jane’s honor.
