Meals on Wheels of Asheville and Buncombe County is in need of pet food donations. Along with their hundreds of homebound elderly clients, they also feed around 120 pets of those clients.
Providing pet food ensures that the elderly are eating their meals and not feeding them to their furry friends. They also don't have to face the possibility of giving up their companions.
Please consider bringing dry food and/or canned food for both cats and small dogs to Swannanoa Library. If you would like to donate toys or treats, those are accepted too!
If you are not located in the Swannanoa area and would like to donate, Meals on Wheels is located at 146 Victoria Road and accepts donations during their regular business hours:
- Monday - Thursday from 8am - 4pm
- Fridays from 8am - 3pm
