Long Island Cares Collects Pet Supplies, Food

Long Island Cares, Inc. (The Harry Chapin Food Bank) recently thanked Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and county employees for participating in Nassau County’s 6th Annual Pet Food Drive Challenge. The pet food drive took place during the month of February and collected hundreds of pounds of food and supplies. Donations will assist Baxter’s Pet Pantry—formed by Long Island Cares in 2009—to provide free pet food and supplies to pet-owning families in need in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

“For many of us, our pets are family,” said Mangano. “These pet food items will help feed animals in need, which in turn keeps pets with their loved ones and out of shelters. I thank those who generously donated and participated in this pet food drive.”

Residents interested in donating pet or regular food items may contact the Freeport Long Island Cares Facility at 516-442-5221.
