Chisholm: Precious Paws Christmas Tree at Jubilee
For several years now, Jubilee, the local grocery store in Chisholm has allowed Precious Paws Humane Society to put up a tree in their store during the month of December. It’s an “angel tree” for animals at the shelter and it’s filled with ornaments with requests written on them for items needed at the shelter. That includes cat litter, kitten chow, laundry detergent, and much more. Jubilee is located right off of the main street in downtown Chisholm if you’d like to stop and see what’s needed.
