Green Acres Kennel Shop Fundraising Page for
the EAAA Furry Friends Food Bank
What Is it?
The Furry Friends Food Bank (FFFB) is a program of the Eastern Area Agency on Aging ( https://www.eaaa.org/furry-friends-food-bank/ ). It helps low-income seniors in Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Washington counties feed their pets. It is also one of the favorite non-profit charities of the Green Acres Kennel Shops and ForceFreePets.com.
The 2022 Fundraiser will run from Sunday, November 27th, thru Saturday, December 31st.
How Can You Help?
This year we are asking that all donations be made online directly to the Furry Friends Food Bank at the EAAA website below.
Why Is This So Important?
Many seniors in our community must survive on a fixed income and often have to choose between feeding their pets or feeding themselves, purchasing medication, or heating their homes during Maine’s long winter. The bond between people and their pets plays a vital role in the physical and mental health of both, especially those that are isolated. Sometimes a pet may be the only living thing a senior interacts with daily. By helping seniors feed their pets, the Furry Friends Food Bank helps keep recipients and their pets together.
At this time of year, when we reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, Green Acres and ForceFreePets encourage everyone to consider the joy they can create by helping keep a pet and person together by donating to the Eastern Area Agency on Aging Furry Friends Food Bank.
The Eastern Area Agency on Aging is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization serving Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, and Washington counties dedicated to providing seniors, adults with disabilities, and caregivers with a variety of options, opportunities, resources, and referrals. (http://www.eaaa.org). The EAAA service area covers 13,000 square miles; Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Washington counties. The Furry Friends Food Bank is just one of several EAAA programs. They accept and redistribute dry and canned pet food, pet treats, and cat litter. Their highest demand is for dry cat food. They also provide $50 vouchers from local veterinarians to assist in veterinary care when they can.
