TRANSFER, Pa. (WKBN) – The Mercer County Humane Society continues to raise money for their new building.

Right now, they’re holding a smoked chicken dinner that you can pre-order.. People who place an order can pick it up on Sunday, Aug. 1.

It’s not the first time the humane society has used food for fundraising.

“My son inherited the smoker from my father who was starting his own smoking business, so he used to do fundraisers like a summer cookout and we would sell raffle tickets for it so they came up with the idea to do it just because smoked food is incredible and it’s an easy way to make money for the humane society,” said humane officer Courtney Ivan.

Each dinner is $15 and comes with a smoked, bone-in whole chicken breast, red skin potatoes and a vegetable.

Pick up will be at the new location at 123 Edgewood Dr. Ext. in Transfer.

Delivery is possible for those in the local area.

The humane society plans on expanding the dates to purchase meals. Those interested in the smoked chicken dinner can contact the humane society’s Facebook page.
