HAH Broward Meals on Wheels Food Drive 2013 RESULTS!!!! - $4000 lbs
This year, Hollywood Animal Hospital's Meals on Wheels Food Drive for Pets was an even larger success then anticipated. While last year we were amazed by the generosity of the community, this year we were completely flabbergasted. Whether is be the 'season of giving' or simply the generosity of this county we collected twice as much food this year then last. With the match from the HAH, just over 4000 lbs of food was delivered to Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets this week.
Members of our community gave and gave. People shared this food drive through social media outlets as well as word of mouth campaigns and boy did that word get around! Multiple individuals even organized their own private food drives at home and work; dropping off food to our lobby in astounding amounts.
"The quantity of food used monthly by Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets is around 800 lbs alone for the southern portion of Broward County. This food collection will go a long way to help feed these furry family members of the seniors in need here in Broward.", said Bobbi Arnold, Co- Chair of Broward Meals on Wheels for pets.
The final day of the drive was given another shot of adrenaline when folks that stopped by for the Free Santa Photos in the Annex gave generously to the cause. With the collection of even more food that day, we were able to pass along $170 collected for the purchase of more food.
"We feel so pleased to be associated with the Broward Meals on Wheels for Pets organization. The community support we've seen is indicative of the kind of community we live and work in and we could not be happier to give back with them."
Thank you to all who donated, shared and supported this food drive.
Happy Holidays to all!
