Lately times have been tough for everyone, but especially for seniors and those on fixed incomes.
They’ve combined efforts to work together on Season of Suppers, a pet food drive through November and December to help seniors and their pets fight hunger.
For some seniors, getting around easily is not an option. Often, their best friend and only companion is a loving dog or cat.
The Season of Suppers campaign, now in its third year, calls attention to the importance of pets to the well-being of homebound seniors. Helping keep these companion pets well- fed, healthy and part of the family for as long as possible.
Last year the Season of Suppers campaign raised more than $51,000. The money helped 50 senior meal programs start, as well as augmenting pet feeding programs across the country.
You can contribute to this wonderful organization by donating pet food and monetary contributions at local Banfield hospitals. Banfield is a private veterinary practice with hospitals located in many communities across the country. Central to their mission is a commitment to providing quality, loving and wise care to pets and their owners.
Or, if you love to send out holiday cards Banfield is offering full-color, pet-themed note cards. A packet of eight cards costs $10, all of the proceeds from the note card sales will be used to improve the lives of Meals on Wheels recipients and their pets.
You can purchase the cards at your local Banfield or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
