Passaic County SPCA “Mobile Pet Pantry” To Attend Martha’s Pantry at St. Clement’s Church
Hawthorne, NJ, January 14, 2021– The Passaic County SPCA will kick off 2021 with its first “Mobile Pet Pantry” event this Saturday, January 16 from 10 am -12 noon at Martha’s Pantry at St. Clement’s Episcopal Church located at 271 Lafayette Ave, Hawthorne NJ. The van will be there distributing dog and cat food until supplies run out.
Linda Heerema, manager of Martha’s Pantry said, “we are happy to have The Passaic County SPCA partner with us. Hopefully, this will have a good outcome for the community pets in need.”
Passaic County SPCA members have prepared 50 care packages for distribution with dry and wet food, as well as treats — 25 for cats and 25 for dogs.
“We are excited to get our new mobile pet pantry out into the community and thankful for our many supporters who donated generously during the holiday season,” said Stephanie Hornback, Passaic County SPCA board member and pantry coordinator. “That generosity means that we will be able to help more New Jersey families and their pets.”
Passaic County SPCA member Craig Cayetano added, “I’m very grateful for Martha’s Pantry helping those in need and allowing the Passaic County SPCA to participate and help as well. We are all doing our part to help in any way during this ongoing pandemic.”
In addition to the mobile pantry, the Passaic County SPCA hosts its own pet food pantry at its headquarters in Hawthorne on the first Saturday of every month from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
