Participants must be pre-registered to attend. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many families in our community who struggle to feed themselves also face the challenge of feeding their pets. “As we watch the lines at local food panties grow, BCHS has seen an increase in calls to our pet food pantry as well,” said Susan Salyards, Executive Director. “We are pleased to serve as the Western PA hub for GreaterGood.org who is working on a national level to provide pet food and supplies for disaster response and providing the food for this event.” Friday’s distribution will occur as a no-contact drive-thru pick up, and individuals will be asked to stay in their cars as food is loaded into their vehicle by BCHS’ staff members and volunteers. For the safety of all involved, staff and volunteers will wear face masks and gloves. Those who are picking up food are asked to wear a face covering of some kind as well. To make a donation so that the Pet Food Bank can continue to support the pets and people who need it most: items can be purchased directly from the shelter’s Amazon Smile Wish List and shipped directly to BCHS; items can be dropped off at the shelter from 11 AM to 3:00 PM. Although the shelter is closed to the public, donation bins are outside of the shelter’s main entrance, weather permitting.
