We delivered 1K Lb of pet food today!

February 12, 2012

Today a group of Phinney’s Friends volunteers gathered in Belmont, MA, to distribute a thousand pounds of pet food to pet owners in need. The Science Diet food was generously donated by Hill’s through a PETCO Foundation program, called PETCO Foundation Food Drive. Dog daycare Crate Escape, in Belmont, donates space for us to store the pet food. Isn’t it amazing? Thanks to these three incredible companies and a wonderful group of selfless volunteers, we made sure many families going through hard times won’t have to surrender their pets because they have food!

We had a wonderful morning of sorting and distribution of pet food in so many neighborhoods. Our volunteers drove to Boston, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Chelsea, Salem, Beverly, Dorchester, Roxbury, Melrose, Malden, Medford, Cambridge, Brookline, among other towns. A HUGE thank you to Crate Escape, Hill’s and PETCO, and Christine, Daniela, Ellen, Heather, Joan, Julie, Leah, Marilyn, Shannon and Stephanie! Enjoy some pictures now…

This is a few days ago, when a truck delivered the Science Diet food to Crate Escape…

Here are some of us moving food to our cars…

We had two huge pallets of food before we started moving bags and cases…

An entire pallet was gone by the end of the morning.

That’s Stephanie’s car before she headed to Dorchester… All our cars were full!

This is Crate Escape entrance, with its cute metal doggies…

By the end of the day, all volunteers reported that the food had been delivered. Wonderful, huh? Team work!

A special thanks to Crate Escape, Hill’s and PETCO, and Christine, Daniela, Ellen, Heather, Joan, Julie, Leah, Marilyn, Shannon and Stephanie!
