BIM’s Annual Richmond Food Bank & SPCA Drive

It’s that time of the year again! For the entire month of December we will be collecting cash and in kind donations for the Richmond Food Bank and BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre.

Last year your generous donations helped us raise over $600 and a couple car fulls of goods for both of these organizations! Below are each organization’s wish lists. Help us make the holiday season a little merrier for those in need. 🙂

Monetary donations are also welcomed. They allow the Richmond Food Bank to purchase perishable food items, like fresh fruits and vegetables and milk.

 

BC SPCA: Richmond Education and Adoption Centre

With the nutritional needs of the BC SPCA’s dogs, cats, puppies and kittens now met through the Hill’s Science Diet, “Second Chance for Love” program, their shelters no longer require donations of regular dog and cat food.

However, they warmly welcome donations of Hill’s® wet pet food for dogs and cats, Hill’s® special diet and senior food, and food for rabbits, birds and other small animals.
