Pet lovers, unite for a good cause!

12 Feb

pfpHave you ever heard about the Pet Food Pantry at Webster United Church of Christ? The awesome Rebel Beat youth group there took it upon themselves to create a pet food pantry from the ground up, coordinating with Meals on Wheels to deliver pet food to their clients who have dogs and  cats at home.

Since the pantry began last summer, it has continued to support Meals on Wheels with a large monthly delivery so that the family pets of home-bound individuals can get much needed pet food and supplies. In the beginning they served more than 50 clients each month. Since then, that number has increased by about 30%. They hope to eventually cover all Meals on Wheels clients in Monroe County.

Right now, the pantry is holding a dry cat food drive, and has set an ambitious goal of 2,400 pounds, which will meet the needs of the Meals on Wheels for Pets program for the rest of 2019.

If you can help, please drop off your donation in the PFP collection bench on the west side of the church at 570 Klem Road.

Or better yet, bring it to the Webster UCC Pet Food Pantry open house on Saturday March 2, which is being held from 6 to 8 p.m. It’s a great opportunity to meet these incredible young people and take a tour of the pantry.

More details to come about the open house, but for now, make sure to grab an extra box of cat food next time you go to the grocery store!
