As the holidays come to a close, many people throughout the Mid-Michigan area find themselves in need of assistance. The same can be said for local animal shelters. From Jan. 15-29, The Laker Current will sponsor a Pet Food and Needs drive for the shelters in Clare, Gladwin and Isabella counties. Donations will be accepted at the Harrison Campus, and the Pickard and Doan campuses in Mt. Pleasant. For more information, see below.
