Event to support agency’s pet pantry
Community Missions will hold its inaugural blessing of the animals from 9-11 a.m. this Saturday at its main site, 1570 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls. The event will feature clergy from various faiths blessing pets from the community. The public is invited to bring their furry (or scaly) friends out to be blessed.
A press release stated, “The event is an opportunity to publicize, and generate donations for, Community Missions’ long-running pet pantry. This program provides food, toys and other supplies for pet owners that may not be able to afford them on their own. Donations can be dropped off anytime, and will be accepted during Saturday’s event.”
“We are excited to perhaps begin a new tradition with offering a blessing of the animals here at Community Missions,” said Christian Hoffman, vice president of public relations and development. “Pets are so important to so many of us, including those that Community Missions serves. Bringing attention to our pet pantry, and ensuring that we have the resources to be able to help our four-legged friends in need, makes the blessing a wonderful opportunity for us.”
