Donna McCrea (center), owner of Newport Grocery Outlet, recently presented Pick of the Litter thrift store manager Yvonne Frausto (left) with a check for $4,000 representing the proceeds of a Grocery Outlet round-up event plus a 100 percent match from the store. Also attending was Rex, Pick of the Litter’s celebrity mascot (aka Brian Kinkaid of First Interstate Bank, the thrift store’s volunteer coordinator). Pick of the Litter, a project of Friends of Lincoln County Animals, is the main source of funding for FOLCAS’s programs helping Lincoln County’s shelter animals and pets (more than $1.2 million to date).
