BANGOR - On Oct. 1, Green Acres Kennel Shop announced their annual fundraiser for the Eastern Area Agency on Aging Furry Friends Food Bank with a goal of raising $1,000 from clients and a commitment to match that with an equal donation from Green Acres if that goal is met. Recently that goal was met with two very generous individual donations, one for $100 and one for $500. With 15 days left until the end of the fundraiser, the goal has been raised to $1,500. If clients raise an additional $500, Green Acres will match that donation as well. All funds raised will be used to buy pet food, at wholesale prices, for distribution by the Eastern Area Agency on Aging Furry Friends Food Bank.

According to Green Acres Kennel Shop owner Don Hanson, 'This is one of the most important fundraising drives we do every year. Many of the seniors in our community, as well as others on a fixed income have to make choices between feeding their pet or feeding themselves 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 person interacts with on a daily basis. By helping them feed their pets, the Furry Friends Food Bank helps keep pet and person together and keeps both healthier. At this time of year when we reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, Green Acres wants to 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.'
