Another group now adding their name to the list of those helping people impacted by the government shutdown in our community.
The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is stepping up to provide free pet food to furloughed federal workers.
“A lot of non-profits are stepping up at this time and we felt it was a time for us to step up as well because we are able to assist,” said Gwen Schablik with the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley.
If you need help, the food will be handed out this weekend at the society’s shelter at 6717 Kingston Pike.
“A lot of this food was donated already in prior donation drives and we receive donations on the regular as well, and we just felt that this was an opportunity to help the community in this time of need,” Schablik said.
This will be available between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27. All you need to bring with you is a government ID.
