Geno, Lulu, Hugo and Rooney, Four Local Dogs, To Collect Food For Hungry Families and Their Pets at Kitchen Studio in Seaside
Kim Lemaire, Executive Director of the Hope Center at the McGowan House along with the all volunteer Board of Directors: Christy Rector, Kim Ruiz and Terri Britton, announced today that four local French Bulldogs are holding a food drive for families and their pets in need on Sunday, October 9th from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Kitchen Studio located at 1096 Canyon Del Rey in Seaside.
The Hope Center's mission is to establish a food pantry serving the Monterey Peninsula, helping our neighbors in need with supplemental groceries. The organization provides information regarding community services and empowers our children to make our world a better place.
"We will serve any family in need and that includes their pets," said Lemaire. "When a family is hungry everyone suffers - mom, dad, the children and their pets."
Geno, Lulu, Hugo and Rooney, owned by Marci Bracco, were having lunch with Lemaire to discuss the Hope Center at the McGowan House when they learned that there are furry four legged friends of all shapes and sizes also going without food and the Hope Center at the McGowan Houses' goal is provide food for all family members in order to keep families together and fed. They held their first annual food drive in 2010 and secured four truck loads of food. The need is even greater in 2011, and their goal is to secure 8 truckloads of foods this year!
Upset to learn that the Hope Center at the McGowan House did not have enough food for the four legged family members, Geno, Lulu, Hugo and Rooney called local community philanthropist, Jillian Clark of Kitchen Studio in Seaside. Clark has opened up her parking lot at 1096 Canyon Del Rey Oaks in Seaside on Sunday, October 9th from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Please stop by and meet the team of the Hope Center of the McGowan House, pick up some information on how you can help, meet Geno, Lulu, Hugo and Rooney and drop off non perishable canned or bagged food for four legged and two legged creatures alike. There will be collection bins on site.
If you want to help - you can also organize a food drive, and spread the word. See our fan page on Facebook: The Hope Center at The McGowan House for more information.
Monetary donations are also welcome. Geno, Hugo, Lulu and Rooney have already raised $400 for food for four legged friends in need by collecting donations from their doggie friends.
