ANONYMOUS DONOR BLESSES THE ANGEL’S DEPOT WITH ANIMEALS PROGRAM
February 17, 2014 • Health & Wellness
Tuesday, February 18th, 2014 at 9:00am, Helen Woodward Animal Center’s AniMeals Program will be on-site at the Oceanside Senior Center to celebrate its new partnership with The Angel’s Depot. The heartwarming union will provide pet food to an increased number of low income seniors and is being made possible by a truly angelic donor. A former AniMeals volunteer who passed away in 2013, the anonymous donation has been made in her honor, by her family, through the beneficial coupling of the two non-profits.
AniMeals is a pet-food-on-wheels program that provides regular meals free of charge for the dogs and cats of homebound elderly and disabled people. The mission of the program is to help keep people and their companion pets together by eliminating one of the logistical and financial impediments to proper pet care.
The Angel’s Depot was founded in 2005 with a specific goal of meeting the nutritional needs of seniors who are at-risk for malnutrition and living with the anxiety of food insecurity. Senior Emergency Meal Boxes are provided to 900 seniors monthly, who struggle with an average income of $765 per month.
Now, thanks to one very special donor who devoted her final years to the AniMeals program, The Angel’s Depot can at last provide for its seniors’ pets. Please join Helen Woodward Animal Center AniMeals representatives, The Angel’s Depot Board of Directors and staff, and benefitting seniors with their beloved pets at the monthly food pickup on Tuesday February 18th at 9:00am at the Oceanside Senior Center.
WHERE: Oceanside Senior Center, located at 455 Country Club Lane Oceanside, CA 92054
WHEN: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH from 9:00 to 10:00am.
