Fight Senior Hunger with Phil!
On March 4, 2013, Phil Cihiwsky began a seven month trek from San Diego, California to York Harbor, Maine to tell the story of over 8 million seniors who are hungry and homebound. In an effort to raise awareness and funds to support Meals-on-Wheels, Phil is walking for those who can’t.
The Banfield Charitable Trust helps to support our AniMeals program, delivering donated dog and cat food for our clients’ beloved animal companions. Every year we have an opportunity to apply for a grant from the Trust and this year we were awarded $2,000! Thank you for your continued support! We can hear the delighted woofs and meows already!
