A couple of local organizations received some help Sunday at a nursery fundraiser.
The Earthly Delights Nursery in Nipomo hosted a fundraiser for the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society and the Arroyo Grande High School National Honors Society.
The Humane Society, which is a no-kill animal shelter, needs funding to build a larger shelter so they can help more animals.
"Some dogs have been with us for two or three years. They stay with us until their loving, forever family find them," said Marcia McCarthy, a volunteer for the Humane Society.
Students from Arroyo Grande High School say their club helps students get into college.
"We are trying to make some money for our college trip that we're going to make early next year. We're going to take a trip to Berkeley and Santa Cruz. We're really excited about it, and we need some funds to do that," said Jake Sarver, a student at Arroyo Grande High School.
Sunday's event featured a flea market, live music, and a barbecue. Both organizations received a portion of the ticket sales and plant sales.
