EARLVILLE – Linda Demuro of Earlville joined the Wanderer's Rest, an animal shelter in Canastota, to support its campaign to build a new shelter. She is its new director of marketing and finance and is helping in the efforts to build a new shelter.
“I like projects. I was lacking a current volunteer effort. I heard they were seeking people and thought it was a good cause,” said Demuro. “I have my own animals that I care for. Who doesn’t love animals? My love for animals fit. The scope of the project fit.”
Linda Demuro has two grown sons in the army and raised them both in Earlville. She also has worked for Morrisville State College, Job Service Employer Committee, Chenango-Delaware-Otsego Workforce Partners’ Committee, New York Association for Continuing and Community Education and Department of Social Services in Chenango County.
“I worked with the initiative to help youth in foster care have a voice. Working for the animal shelter campaign, I utilize the same concepts of networking and making relationships. The cause is similar, except this time I am working to help animals rather than people. Animals have a lot of the same needs as children and need a voice,” said Demuro.
