Jefferson County Pet Food Pantry was formed in the fall of 2010. On February 18th, 2011 we received our Articles of Incorporation from the State of Missouri making us a legitimate organization.
It has been such a journey full of ups/downs, heartaches, headaches and mostly backaches smile emoticon I can't tell you how many times I felt defeated and wanted to give up. I have lost track of how many moves we made.
This last year has been AMAZING for us! We love our location (central to all of JeffCo), our neighbors are wonderful and opening the Thrift Store has been the best thing we ever did (making us somewhat self sufficient).
None of this could happen without the support of our community, our friends, my family (thanks to my dad for always being there for me) your donations/backing, my dedicated and highly beloved volunteers.
Much love to you Mary Urness (volunteer extraordinaire/wonderful friend ) for sticking by me the last few years. You are a joy to work with, no drama and lots of fun.
Thank you everyone for helping us make it to 5 years!!
