SHBHU Ambassadors and Small Handers have now formed a Compassion Mission volunteer opportunity!
Will you help them help our Partners at the SPCA of Wake County and also at Meals on Wheels who help so many? We have a unique way to share of how they bring joy to our Seniors in the community!! Did you know that for the 1 out of 4 seniors who live alone, their pets provide a vital source of love and companionship for them? For some of the Seniors in our area, their pets are the only family they may have! Did you know that the SPCA of Wake County supplies Meals on Wheels with pet food so that their furry companions receive the meals they need too! SHBHU Ambassadors and Small Handers have now formed a compassion mission to help out too!
There are 2 unique ways you can help!
#1 We will be packing breakfast bags for our Seniors in need in partnership with Meals on Wheels. If you can volunteer to pack and decorate any amount of breakfast that would be fantastic! If you would just like to donate the food items that is great too! Meals on Wheels are requesting a juicebox, a fruit, a package of instant oatmeal and a granola bar in each bag.
#2 We also have here is a list of specific items the SPCA and Meals on Wheels are requesting that their Seniors furry companions who bring them so much joy. See list below.
Lastly, we have also provided a list of accessible SHBHU family drop off locations if you would like to donate any of these items. Our hope is to make this compassion mission as accessible as ever so all can participate.
