Coldwell Banker Select real estate agents serving Northern Nevada delivered 435.8 pounds of pet food to Friends in Service Helping, or FISH, a Carson City-based social services organization and pet food provider site for Feeding Pets of the Homeless.
All donations received during Coldwell Banker’s pet food drive in October were split between Feeding Pets of the Homeless and the Nevada Humane Society Carson City.
“All of our agents support both of these great groups who take care of the animals who have no voices,” Victoria Williams, Coldwell Banker Select managing broker, said in a news release. “We like to provide for those in need through all of the charitable organizations in our beautiful Capital City.”
Genevieve Frederick, founder and president of Feeding Pets of the Homeless, said the 435.8 pounds of pet food, valued at over $575, delivered to FISH will ensure many pets in Carson City will not go hungry this holiday season.
