During the month of September, Serving Outside Our Doors will be collecting dog and cat food. These items will be given to the DuPage Senior Citizens Council (DSCC), a nonprofit that helps provide services like Meals on Wheels for seniors in the area. For many seniors, their pets mean everything to them, but caring for their pet can also add stress to their lives. The DSCC provides assistance for seniors who sometimes find it is difficult to take care of themselves and their pet. The DSCC has volunteers who stop by our seniors' homes to deliver the pet food.
You can help by bringing small bags of pet food, treats and cat litter to the collection box in the Fellowship Hall at River Glen during the month of September. (Small bags are easier for the drivers to take to the seniors.) Thank you for helping to support senior citizens and their pets. For more info, please contact Terry Moore.
