2015 Year End Review!

Our numbers are down from last year due to our move, getting things set up and many people unaware of our new location. Thankfully mid-year we were going full force to help those less fortunate.
It was an amazing year for the pantry (the best yet). We love our new, convenient location and opening the thrift store has taken a huge burden off of our financial needs.
This year we provided:
21,000 lbs of dry dog food and 7,000 of dry cat food. We gave away thousands cans of food, treats, toys, collars, leashes, bowls and more.
We covered spay/neuter cost for 18 dogs and 27 cats.
Due to deaths in families and some of our members falling on even harder times, we were able to find homes/rescues for 4 dogs, 2 kittens, a momma cat and 8 kittens!
We provided humane euthanasia for 2 dogs and 1 cat.
We receive so many blankets, towels, sheets and dog treats..we were able to donate them to many of our local shelters and rescues who really needed them.
We provided feral cat shelters to some of our folks caring for the poor kitties. Thank you Tina Landis for setting them up for us.
Our thrift store has provided free clothing, shoes and household goods to many of our low income pantry members. Items we aren’t able to use go to Social Services in Hillsboro for families in need.
We also, (thanks to Jennifer Bess) have a regular delivery for our home bound/disabled pantry members! Much love to Jennifer as she also takes a lot of these animals to their vet appointments and goes above and beyond!
Thanks to everyone for making 2015 a fantastic year!!

Year End Tax Deduction

Less than a week to make a tax deductible, year end donation!! We are a small (but mighty) organization which relies solely on donations. We have accomplished so much over the years and want to do more to help our community. We have big plans for 2016, but without donations we cannot achieve out goals. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to our organization?

THANK YOU Jesse's Pizza & Wings (5635 Old HWY 21, Imperial MO) for Feeding Us!!

HUGE "Shout Out" to our neighbors Jesse's Pizza and Wings for donating several pizza's and a lot of chicken wings for our volunteer party. You all went above and beyond. The service was amazing and so was the food, (delivery guy kept coming by to see if we needed more food, kept delivering it and even took group pictures). PLEASE support these guys! They were top notch to deal with and made our party very special.5635 Old HWY 21, Imperial, MO 63052 (636) 948-0522

Volunteer Christmas Party 2015

Volunteers are the heart and soul of any non-profit organization . I am truly blessed to have the best group of people in my life who's dedication and love is beyond words. I have thrift store volunteers, people who pick up and deliver food (from locations and to our home-bound members), those who bag pet food and those who work our distributions. Today we had our 1st ever volunteer Christmas party. It was great for us to finally spend some time together, not working and just getting to know each other. I'm sorry I cried so much today, but I love and appreciate you all so much. Each and everyone of you mean so much to me! xoxox ~Debby

Our Christmas Pet Food Distribution Was The Best YET!!

WOW!! On Sunday Dec. 20th, 2015 we gave away 2,120 lbs of dog food, 762 lbs of cat food, hundreds of canned food, litter, toys and treats yesterday. Thanks to everyone who donated, made/donated toys, bagged pet food and treats. Thanks to the donor who gave us the coolers and to Tina L for making 3 feral cat shelters we were able to give away. We had tubs of toys and treats! ...and we signed up 7 dogs and 11 cats to get fixed!! Most of all thanks to the hard working, dedicated volunteers who give their free time to make this happen!
Our people were very happy to get so much yesterday. ~Debby

Helping a Disabled Veteran at Christmas.

Last week I was contacted by Abbey Candy who wanted to "adopt" one of our pantry members for Christmas. I immediately thought of Rich (who is a disabled Vietnam vet, with PTSD and has a very hard time). Even though tall in stature, Rich is one of the most kind, gentle people you would ever want to meet. He has 5 senior cats, a raccoon (not a pet, but will eat from his hands). What keeps him calm is feeding and watching the birds. We don't have bird seed, but thanks to Abbey for supplying that for him along with other necessities, it made this sweet man so very happy. Rich approved my posting his picture, along with volunteer Bill (in the Santa hat). It was very heartwarming. Thank you Abbey for doing this for Rich.
