Thanksgiving Food Exchange: How Your Food Donation Turns into a Pet Food Donation to Operation Kindness
The Thanksgiving Food Exchange is a food drive with a twist we hold each November at All Creatures Veterinary Center (allcreatuesonline.com). We collect human or pet food from our wonderful clients and friends. The cans of corn, jars of peanut butter and boxes of cereal are weighed on the pet scale in our lobby and we keep a chart showing the weight of all the donations.
We give all the donated food to Metrocrest Social Services in Carrollton (metrocrestservices.org). Last year it was over 900 lbs. Then in December, All Creatures donates an equal amount of Hill’s® and Royal Canin Pet Food to Operation Kindness – the no-kill animal shelter in Carrollton.
We are going to continue the Food Exchange this year and our goal is to collect and donate 1000 lbs. of food. So even if you aren’t one of our clients, feel free to bring your human food donations by our office at 2525 E Hebron Pkwy. at Marsh Ridge Rd. It will do double duty by helping the cats and dogs at Operation Kindness (operationkindness.org).
A list of commonly needed items from Metrocrest’s web site: Peanut butter, Canned fruit, Mac & Cheese, Flavored rice & pasta “helpers” & “ronis”, Breakfast Cereal.
