Brookshire’s employees rolled up their sleeves Wednesday, November 17, to help walk, feed, and groom some of the animals at the Humane Society of East Texas in Tyler.
Company officials, along with representatives of Mars PetCare and the Pedigree brand, also presented a check for $8,100 and bags of pet food to HSOET Executive Director Gayle Helms.
The check was made possibly by a donations and store sales program in BGC supermarkets.
The Humane Society provides approximately 27,000 pounds of food for animals each year at the shelter.
“We are very appreciative of the continued support received by BGC and Mars and their customers, especially at this time of the year” Helms said. “So often people forget about the needy animals, especially during the holidays.”
The HSOET is a selective admission, no-kill animal sanctuary serving Tyler and east Texas.
