Lots of help for animals
Posted: Friday, July 2, 2010 10:07 pm
On behalf of our board, staff and animals, the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to both the Santa Maria Valley Leadership Class of 2010 and McKeon-Phillips Winery for organizing separate fundraising events to help the animals last weekend.
All on their own, generous people came together to make a difference for the animals, and we are deeply touched by their support. The SMV Leadership’s Stuff the Pet Food Pantry food drive was an incredible success.
Weeks of preparation and promotion resulted in the collection of more than 100 bags of pet food along with toys, treats, canned food, collars and leashes. We are so impressed by their dedication and hard work. Local business leaders used their own businesses and resources to help promote the event and serve as collection sites for food and supplies.
Meathead Movers donated the use of their big truck and hundreds of boxes, while Postnet donated signs and a beautiful, all-weather banner. We extend our sincere thanks to all of the generous sponsors who made this happen and to each and every person who donated items to help our animals. We are so touched by the outpouring of support.
We are also delighted to report that McKeon-Phillips Winery chose our organization as the recipient of proceeds from its Summer Solstice event. They promoted our organization and the homeless animals we serve. We are so grateful for their support.
On behalf of the animals, thank you,
Santa Maria Valley Humane Society
