Our week collecting pet food with The Preston & Steve Show on 93.3 WMMR was just amazing! Where do I start thanking friends when we have an event that has so many moving pieces?
Do I start with our BOARD- always there for each other- sharing the work, ideas, stress, and kudos? Amazing people with their own jobs, pets, fosters- people who volunteer with the animals on top of all that? Christa, Jeanie, Marta, Diana, and John- you are the best!! Do I start with our CORPORATE PARTNERS? Pet360 who always says YES when we reach out with requests for food for the pet food pantry? With Nonstop Couriers who always say YES when we need pet food transported? Rick, you rock!! With Puro-Tec who helps us with anything and everything? With Pet Valu – US- they say YES any time we need anything! Food, truck, funds- they are a great group of people! With The Preston & Steve Show on 93.3 WMMR who keeps inviting us back, year after year, to collect pet food at their annual people food drive? We have BIG LOVE for these guys!! xoxo With all of YOU? Our online FRIENDS who read and share our posts? Helping spread the word about adoption events, urgent animals, the need for donated food, and everything else? Who helped by donating pet food for the hungry babies? We are so very touched and appreciative to ALL of you. Thank you for being amazing advocates for Philly’s animals in need! Our amazing rescue partners who save the lives of animals every day at ACCT Philly! Over 20 rescue partners were able to stock up on food for their fosters so they can continue to do the fabulous work they do! Lastly- our VOLUNTEERS are just the BEST! They arrange their schedules so they can volunteer year after year, event after event to help Philly’s homeless animals with us.
Our soft estimate of donated food this year is 28,000lbs and we are expecting another LARGE donation next week from Pet Valu. WOW!!!! There are many many families in need that will benefit from all these donations. THANK YOU ALL- you are wonderful! Much love, Michelle
