February 24

Pet Food Sunday

Pet Food Sunday will be held Feb. 24 in area churches. Pet Partner Connections helps those in need to feed and care for their companion animals at home. Last year our Penn Yan and Dundee area churches collected enough food to feed area pets for months. We hope to have the same success this year. Please bring dry or canned pet food to your church for distribution to Yates County pets. Food can also be donated in pet food baskets and collection jars at Black Cat Café (Keuka Coffee Roasters), Penn Yan and Dundee Knapp & Schlappi, Penn Yan Community Banks and Lyons National Bank.
