Allentown, Pennsylvania (26 October 2020) – The Lehigh Valley IronPigs and Valley Central Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center are partnering to hold a Pet Food Drive on Saturday, November 7 from 9-11 a.m. at Coca-Cola Park. The IronPigs and Valley Central Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center are looking for generosity in donation from the community to help families in need to help feed their pets.
“We are excited to once again to partner with Valley Central Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center to host a pet food drive here at Coca-Cola Park,” said IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. “Pet owners and their pets have been impacted by COVID-19 and this pet food drive will provide an opportunity to help families in need to help feed their pets.”
Valley Central Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center has created a wish list for families the pet food will be donated to and are asking those who will be donating to visit the wish list. The link can be found by clicking here. Guests can begin to visit the wish list starting today. Guests will be able to select either dog or cat food plus canned or bagged dry food if they choose to donate via the wish list. Any non-wish list donations will also be accepted.
