Carubba Collision Corp. President, Joe Carubba, recently presented a $2,500 check to the Food Bank of WNY in support of Feeding America and PetSmart Charities’ Buy a Bag, Give a Meal program.
For every bag of dog or cat food purchased in-store or online, PetSmart provides a meal to a pet in need served by pet shelters, animal welfare organizations and food banks – including the Food Bank of WNY.
“We are using the generous donation that Joe Carubba designated for pet food toward the distribution of this product. The pet food will be available to our member agencies throughout our four-county service area,” explained Catherine Shick, Public & Community Relations Manager for the Food Bank of WNY. “Mr. Carubba’s generosity will cover nearly 18,000 pounds of pet food –so it will really go a long way!” said Shick.
“I have a tremendous amount of compassion and love for animals. I have had pets all my life and this is a wonderful program for me to get behind” stated Joe Carubba.
“Many of our community members in need are pet owners. It is not uncommon for them to be faced with the tough decision of having to choose between buying food for their pet or food for themselves. Thanks to Joe, our agencies will be able to easily order and offer this pet food to help their clients,” stated Shick.
Carubba Collision has served the greater Buffalo area since 1955. Giving back to the community is something that Carubba Collision has a long and proud history of. Several not- for- profits have benefited from the generosity of Carubba Collision over the years.
