Hamilton Co. Tourism Gives Back launches

0

For the project “Tourism Gives,” the Hamilton County Tourism staff identified nine organizations doing big things for the community. Hamilton County Tourism asked for nominations of particularly stellar volunteers – those who regularly go “above and beyond” what is asked of them. Next, Hamilton County Tourism staff put together special “staycation” packages with hotel, restaurant and attraction certificates from local tourism partners as a “thank you” for the giving these volunteers do every day. The catch? None of the volunteers had any prior knowledge of the covert giving operation.

Russ Mulholland and Nancy Thomas

Hamilton County Humane Society

Noblesville

Russ and Nancy dedicate hours each week to taking Hamilton County Humane Society dogs on walks, regardless of the weather. Despite having some physical limitations, Russ and Nancy have walked dogs in rain, sleet and snow, because the dogs need exercise regardless of the forecast. Together, Russ and Nancy have logged 412 hours walking dogs over the last four years.
