We’re collecting pet food, cat litter and gently used supplies at the event for People & Pets Together, a local pet food shelf that works to prevent surrenders due to economic hardship. Prescription food and open bags are accepted. Learn more here.
Hosted by the Community Engagement Committee. In case of severe weather, we’ll postpone and share info at armatage.org and on social media.
