CCHS Community Relations Director Brian Papalia said “We are so grateful to Bernadette for volunteering her time and talent to help the animals at CCHS. We are hoping everyone in the community takes advantage of this unique opportunity to have their pets photo with Santa.  All the money raised will go to help the animals that rely on CCHS.”
