We would like to thank Shaws Supermarket on Main Street in Bangor for allowing us to use our “sad eyes” to aid in the gathering of pet food in order to stock up the Furry Friends Food Bank.
Bangor Police Officer Liz Brunton, Kelly Adams from the Eastern Area Agency on Aging, and Shaws Supermarket Manager Kevin Mooney are seen here with Marcy, a disinterested pooch (she might have noticed the dog chow situated in very close proximity to our TVOK (Transport Van of Kindness).
The prisoners who have the pleasure of riding in this rig never refer to it that way, but no one complains that it smells a tad like kibble.
The donated pet food allows elderly folks to keep their pets fed, and it helps them minimize their concerns about deciding between purchasing food for themselves or buying for their loving critters. It’s a good thing.
Eastern Area Agency on Aging has used these supplies to help over four hundred seniors in Penobscot and surrounding counties. Shaws is kind enough each year to allow us to plant our happy selves right in the front to bring attention to the cause.
For those who need help, or want to donate, should seek out the Eastern Area Agency on Aging website for more information.
Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.
We will be here.
