The Clinton Humane Society received a donation from Purina on Monday, March 31 of 17 palettes containing dog and cat food. Within about three hours, all the donations had been picked up by people in the community.
“The response has been amazing,” Jennifer Gerdes, Operations Manager said. “People are extremely grateful for Purina’s generosity, as are we.”
Each household could take up to three bags. According to officials, donations like this can go a long way for people during the uncertainty of the coronavirus.
“It’s going to be great for the community,” said Heather Fall, a recipient. “Everybody’s struggling, everybody’s laid off, so yeah, it’s a good thing, it’s great.”
The Clinton Humane Society is scheduled to receive 18 additional palettes on Wednesday, the first of April. Gerdes said they will post on their Facebook page again letting people know when it is available.
