CVCC kicked off its first annual Day of International Understanding event Tuesday to celebrate community diversity.
The Day of International Understanding was a two-part event held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5-7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Complex coordinated by the Multicultural Affairs Office. The event was open to the public and admission was free. The event started with the national anthem and then participants introduced themselves in their native languages.
Thieves who robbed the Humane Society of Catawba County on Monday night didn't just steal from the non-profit agency.
They stole from the animals it works to protect.
"It is quite heart-breaking that someone would break in and steal," said Juli Reed with HSCC. "It is heart-breaking that somebody would take advantage of us and the animals."
When Humane Society staff members arrived at the facility on 20th Avenue Southeast on Tuesday morning, they immediately saw signs of a break-in.
