As of March 30, 2022, the UN has estimated that more than 10 Million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes as a result of the recent invasion. This also translates into an estimated millions of pets and animals that have been displaced or abandoned as a result of these unimaginable circumstances, as families leave their homes behind to find safety. The situation is absolutely dire-- Ukraine needs our help NOW!
West Lebanon Feed & Supply is once again launching our "Cause for Paws" campaign to provide resources for food and supplies in the areas of Ukraine that need it most. We've utilized our Cause for Paws programs in the past to raise funds to assist in times of crisis (Hurricane Katrina - $20,000 raised; Hurricane Irene - Hands Across the River volunteerism program initiated; Hurricane Harvey - $10,000 raised) and we are calling on the generous folks here in the Upper Valley region and beyond to answer the call to help! Together with you, we hope to raise up to $25,000 for the Cause.
We've explored many options and have chosen to partner with Greater Good Charities, a highly-respected 501(c)(3) non-profit that is currently providing relief on the ground in Ukraine through a variety of resource channels. Because of the location and the situation on the ground, relief efforts are currently requesting monetary resources as opposed to donated goods-- the cost to ship food and supplies is prohibitive and more recipients can be helped through fundraising efforts than drives for hard goods. In light of this, we are asking you, our wonderful customers and neighbors to join in this effort by making a donation to help.
