‘Tis the Season for Giving

By Liz Moser, Development Coordinator

While the holiday season is a time of joy for many, it can also be a time of stress and uncertainty. For many families in our community, the winter months mean higher utility bills and a host of other expenses that make it tough to make ends meet. Throughout the fall and winter, more families turn to local food pantries for help stretching their food supplies and budgets.

During this time, it is more important than ever for families to have access to free pet food from our Chow Wagon Pet Food Bank. Our Chow Wagon is dedicated to serving all of our families, but we can’t meet the increased need without the generosity of our supporters. We rely on in-kind donations to keep our shelves full so that we can continue to serve the community.

One way you can help support families in need is to host a pet food drive – this is a great way to give back to the community and help make an impact on pets and their people! In-person food drives can be held almost anywhere – your church, school, workplace or favorite community hangout could all potentially be the site of a collection box or bin.

Virtual food drives are an even easier way to help stock our shelves with needed supplies. Simply share the link to our in-kind wish lists at ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org/WishList with your family, friends or other networks to generate support for Chow Wagon without breaking a sweat! Supplies will be delivered right to our door, where we can immediately send them where they’re needed most.

Your support helps us keep pets fed and families together. Contact our Pet Retention team at PetRetention@ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org for more information on our most needed items or for help getting started with your collection drive.
