Celebrate Mother’s Day With a Donation to Charleston Animal Society’s Food Bank
Charleston Animal Society’s Food Bank Shelves are almost empty! Each month, the Community Food Bank provides approximately 100 struggling families with food for their pets. The service depends entirely on donations by the public. Donations can be made by dropping off food at the shelter or by having it delivered through an online retailer such as Amazon or Petango.
“Many families in the Charleston area depend on our Community Food bank to feed their animals,” explains Joe Elmore, Chief Executive Officer at Charleston Animal Society. “If not for the food bank, they would be faced with the possibility of giving up their beloved pets.”
“Right now the shelves of the food bank are all but bare,” Elmore adds. “Last weekend, we actually ran out of food.”
“We encourage people to honor their mothers in honor of the upcoming Mother’s Day weekend with a donation to local pet owners in need,” says Elmore. “After all, who appreciates the importance of keeping families whole more than your mother?”
The Food Bank is available for any Charleston county pet owner in need. It is open every Saturday at the Charleston Animal Society located at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston. Participating families typically receive a one month supply of food.
