The drive is designed to support Jordyn’s Cause 4 Paws in their mission to assist Meals on Wheels participants in caring for their pets (often their only companions), to be hosted by Stony Brook Gardens located at Route 31 North at Yard Road, Pennington, through Dec. 24.
“The services that we provide the seniors of Mercer County are critical and the need is rapidly increasing,” said Sasa Olessi Montaño, CEO of Meals on Wheels of Mercer County. “We partner with Jordyn’s Cause 4 Paws in order to help feed the pets of our homebound participants. Last year we distributed approximately 10,000 pounds of pet food to feed around 40 pets per week. Our participants should never have to choose between feeding themselves or feeding their pet.”
