Wellness Natural Pet Food Donates to Boston Food Bank
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic creating economic challenges and worries for families across the greater Boston area, Wellness Natural Pet Food has donated 33,000 pounds of pet food to the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). Officials from the Tewksbury, Mass.-based company said they made the decision to ensure that no family is worried about how they will continue to support their pet.
“We want to make sure that every pet in our community has access to a full bowl with high-quality, natural food,” said Camelle Kent, chief executive officer of WellPet, the maker of Wellness Natural Pet Food. “Giving back to pets in need is an important part of our company culture and our guiding light in all that we do through our Wellness Foundation and other charitable giving efforts, and we are committed to doing everything we can to support pet parents who may need a little extra help during this difficult time.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many people in the Boston community without a stable way to provide for their family, including their pets, according to officials.
“The Greater Boston Food Bank is grateful for partners like Wellness Natural Pet Food for their generous donation during this unprecedented situation,” said Catherine D’Amato, president and CEO of GBFB. “Everyone has a role in ending hunger in our community and this donation will help our neighbors in need provide food for their four-legged friends.”
