In 2010 Philadoptables was approached to collect pet food at WMMR’s The Preston & Steve Show’s Camp out For Hunger. This drive has been a people-food drive since its inception but the guys were kind enough to see the effect the economy was having on animals and their families. Collected food goes to families in need, foster parents of Philly’s animal control shelter and rescue partners who pull animals from the Philly shelter and into their loving care.
This will be our SEVENTH year being part of this amazing event! Philadoptables’ preparation begins a few months in advance as we start identifying locations to place collection boxes – schools, offices, stores, everywhere we can think ok! Our volunteers are amazing and all collected food is brought to the BIG EVENT – November 28th through December 2nd at Xfinity Live!
Traditionally Preston and Steve have lived in an RV for a week while conducting live shows out of a giant tent. This week long event is super fun but more importantly – everyone there is donating people and pet food of those in need. As we ramp up for Camp Out 2016 we need your help more than ever! We are looking for folks to help collect donated pet food – we provided a letter of introduction and flyers here. Need posters and collection boxes? Let us know!!
Follow us on Facebook for event updates throughout the week. Your help is needed to make this year a success!
