One of the advantages to donating bags of food to our drop-off either in person or via the Amazon wish list is that the food is in the hands of the caretakers within a matter of days.
Someone recently donated this bag of food
Within a few hours after arrival, it was taken to a 92 year-old woman who has a cat colony at her home. She’s considered one of the best caretakers, but a fixed income is always a barrier to getting everything her colony needs Your donations will help her continue to do this important work.
Our friends and collaborators at CARMAA are working to establish sustainable funding so neighbors like this one will receive some food each month. A monthly donation even of a 5 lb bag can make a huge impact.
Here’s how to help –
- Donate dry or canned food via our Amazon wishlist (includes other items often needed by caretakers) and the items will automatically be shipped to our drop-off location
- Bring your donation directly to our drop-offs: Northside – Mr. Sign retail business along Western Avenue near the West End Bridge. You can leave food on the porch/garage area if they are closed. The address is 1316 Western Ave 15233. Natrona Heights – leave donations on the porch at 41 Sycamore Street, Natrona Heights, PA 15065. Tarentum – HCMT clinic at 207 Allegheny Street, Tarentum, PA 15084. Volunteers are usually there between roughly 3 and 5pm daily, but that is not always a given so if no one is there, please do not leave your items unattended.
- Make a financial donation via our crowdfund – donations go to the Homeless Cat Management Fund 501c3 and will be used specifically for purchasing food.
- Follow us on Facebook and share this post with your friends, asking them to contribute what they can.
