Several years ago, the Progressive Women’s Association sent out a questionnaire to the public asking for their input on programs that were needed in the area. One of the programs most listed was a need for a pet pantry to assist individuals with feeding their pets. The PWA board immediately set up a pantry to complement their food pantry. Donations of pet food and money came in and we welcomed the birth of Peppy’s Pet Pantry. Hundreds of pounds of cat and dog food have been distributed to local individuals through the pantry.
Betty Waddy, PWA president, met with management at Pet Supply Plus and they partnered with the PWA in keeping the pantry supplied for our little furry friends. Pet Supply Plus continues to be one of the largest donors to the pantry.
The PWA will also be preparing free meals for the homeless and Pet Supply Plus employees will be assisting in the serving of the meals. This will be a community project. For more information about the project, call 304-624-6881.
Thanksgiving was a time for us to think about all those things we have to be thankful for. I hope it prepared you spiritually for the coming season of Christmas. No matter how many negatives you have in your life, there are always those who are worse off than we are. As we prepare for this most holy season, I hope you will add a little spirituality to your daily activities.
I want to send out birthday wishes to Mike and Marty Queen, Miranda Lang and Holli and Hunter Queen, and many, many more in good health.
I urge each of you to get in the spirit of the holiday season, to stay safe and healthy and until next week “Now You Have Heard It Through The Grapevine.”
