2016 March Mississippi Craft Show Donations
March 30, 2016, the Mississippi Craft Show were thrilled to be able to donate 840 pounds of quality cat food to Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter.
Thanks to the hard work of everyone involved in the Handmade USA Show earlier this month we were able to make this donation today. Thanks also to our good friends at Hollywood Feed Ridgeland MS who once again worked with us to get this large order of food delivered so quickly – Will and Patrick even helped us load up our truck!
Today we delivered this truck full of cat food and presented it to Jackson Friends to help them feed the numerous cats that are in their care. We are happy to have been able to make this donation, but want to let people know that this load of food won’t last long as the need is never ending. No matter how many wonderful homes they find for the animals in their care, there are always many more to take their place awaiting a loving home of their own. Jackson Friends continues to survive only with the generous donations from the community. Every single $1 helps, every single bag of food, kitty litter, or anything else that you can donate is always welcome and greatly appreciated. And of course all of those animals are patiently awaiting a home of their very own so drop by any of their adoption drives and visit them on Facebook to find a loving dog or cat that you can welcome into your family! Or if you can’t adopt, consider becoming a foster family. There are many ways you can help! Thank you to Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter for joining us at the Handmade USA Show; thank you to all the exhibitors who made the show so amazing; thanks to all our wonderful shoppers and craft loving fans, and thanks to the MS Craft Show Team who work so hard to make all this happen. None of this would be possible without every single one of you!
