I’m writing to request help for the People Care Pet Pantry, a non-profit organization that furnishes pet food to families who cannot afford to purchase food for their animals.
These people have fallen on hard times, and without help from PCPP, they might have to give up their pets. That adds stress to an already stressful situation.
The PCPP is in Portage County, but serves all of Northeast Ohio. There are over 100 families on the waiting list and they’re out of dry dog / cat food.
You can drop off food at the following: Christian Life Center, 5931 Rhodes Road, Kent; Petco Brimfield, 3975 Cascades Blvd.; Petco Solon, 6025 Kruse Blvd.; the Hiram Police Dept., 11617 Route 700; or Devil Strip Dollys, 923 Bank St., Akron.
Or you can make a monetary donation at http://peoplecarepetpantry.webs.com, or mail to People Care Pet Pantry, c/o Rene Lamp, 2994 Sandy Lake Road, Ravenna 44266. Make checks payable to People Care Pet Pantry.
Winter is almost here, and the need is great. Church, 4-H or Scout groups or any service organization are welcome to run a food drive. This is a 501c3 not for profit group.
I’d hate to have to give up my pets because I couldn’t afford to feed them. Many people the group helps are senior citizens on fixed incomes, but others have lost their jobs or homes.
It is a great group and this service helps keep animals from going to shelters when owners fall on hard times. Shelters are already full, and there is no place for many of these animals to go.
This a great opportunity to pay it forward. Please consider helping.
