Every year Cabinetparts.com selects two non-profit organizations to make a donation towards. This year after a companywide vote, we chose the Humane Society of Broward County and the American Cancer Society. Today we are going to tell you a little bit about the Humane Society of Broward County.
The Humane Society of Broward County was chosen because most of our employees are animal lovers and have adopted from the Humane Society of Broward County personally.
