STURBRIDGE — Here's a toast to local animal shelters.

Yankee Spirits liquor store in Sturbridge, along with Yankee Spirits Inc. establishments in South Attleboro and Swansea, announced last week that it will make a $15,000 donation to various animal shelters in the area of each store.

According to Michael Cimini, chairman of the Sturbridge Economic Development Committee and owner of the Sturbridge Yankee Spirits locale, the stores have a long history of making annual donations to multiple charities.

This year, rather than help multiple entities on a small scale, the employees of Yankee Spirits decided to consolidate efforts and make a single donation to a single cause.

"We were giving away about that amount, but to 100 little groups," Cimini said of $5,00 per store contribution.
