On Friday and Saturday, both stores will be grilling outside and serving up a great meal to Super One customers.

UPAWS will also be asking Super One customers to shop for the shelter while they are in the store. It�s an easy way to donate items that the shelter uses every day. A list of shelter needs will be available and shoppers can purchase these things and then leave the items with a UPAWS volunteer. UPAWS will get them back to the shelter every donated item helps them care for the animals.
Some popular UPAWS T-shirts will be available for purchase. And UPAWS will also have Rescue Raffle tickets available. For only $5 a ticket, the purchaser could win the top prize of $1,000. The drawing will be on Dec. 21.
All the money raised at the cookout, the T-shirt sales, donated items and raffle tickets all help support UPAWS’s shelter.
