Hearts Alive Village Becomes Disaster Food Distribution Center
Hearts Alive Village has seen many changes in our community since starting the pet food bank back in 2013. Before the pandemic, Kendall’s Kupboard had shared 60 tons of pet food with a community in need.
In 2020, as the pandemic was wreaking havoc on our community, Greater Good Charities reached out and asked if we could become the Disaster Relief Distribution Center of pet food for our area. We gladly accepted the challenge.
Through an initial grant from The Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation, we had enough to get started, to secure a warehouse for one year, and buy a forklift. The process of enrolling citizens and distributing the food to nourish hungry pets was quickly developed. Over the months, the desperation and need grew.
