On Dec. 3 Alameda Support Foundation (ASF) held its yearly Christmas fundraiser and plant sale to benefit the animals at the Alameda Animal Shelter. ASF raised some $3,000 for Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS), whose contract renewal with the city will be considered in January.
Eight-year-old Jason Goodell, who comes to every ASF event, baked cupcakes and sold them for a dollar each, raised a total of $50, which he donated to the cause.
“It was easy for me to want to help,” Jason said. “My rescue dog ‘Cupcake’ has changed my life.”
