The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Donating Items to those in need – The Gift That Keeps on Giving –

A very Happy New Year wish from all of us at Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens. Our New Year’s wish for you is a year filled with wonderful memories and special moments with those you love. We are reminded of those less fortunate during these cold winter days and realize how fortunate we are to have the basic necessities of life readily available to us. There are many folks who have had situations occur in their lives through no fault of their own, that have caused them to loose a job, home, automobile or loved ones. There are many people alone and with no resources that are depending on the goodness of others to help them through a rough time.

This is where organizations like the City Union Mission, Uplift Organization, Salvation Army and others come to the rescue.

We are fortunate to have a partnership with Uplift Organization where we are able to help provide much needed food for the pets of those less fortunate than many of us.

Folks who have lost their homes often have pets. It is our hope that these pets can stay with their owners as they often provide comfort and companionship to the homeless. Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens for Pets is seeking donations of pet food, toys, leashes, collars, blankets, and pet beds.

You can help. Has your pet outgrown a collar or leash? Has his diet changed and you have an open bag of pet food you won’t use? Or one your pet doesn’t like? Tape up the open bag of pet food and bring it to Rolling Acres. Your donations will be distributed to the homeless in the community.

In September 2001, Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens for Pets started soliciting contributions for homeless people’s pets, either pet food or money for pet food. Some of their concerns are food for their pets, veterinary care, and the afterlife care of their pets – the same as ours!

Other items that could be donated include: blankets, towels, or clothing for humans as well as pet food. If you have anything to donate, just bring it to us, and we’ll deliver it for you. In 2013, with the generous and overwhelming assistance of the community, Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens for Pets provided 6,112 pounds of dry pet food, 391 cans of canned pet food, cat and dog treats, as well as pet beds, pet carriers, toys, collars, leashes, pet brushes, and combs to Homeless Peoples’ Pets.

The need for this support has been increasing. Rolling Acres thanks the public for their help in this year-round project. Uplift Organization is the primary benefactor of the pet food and supplies. We also supply the Red Cross with pet food.Uplift Organization
