Last month Carmen Hintz all of a sudden found herself with four brand new kittens after her dog Hundy discovered them at the ranch they were housesitting.
In order to cover veterinary costs associated with the four new rescues, Hintz did a bottle drive and some other fundraising and wound up raising nearly $2400.
So after taking care of the kittens, making sure they were healthy and had good homes, Hintz donated the extra cash raised to the SPCA and, pictured below, she also presented $500 to Heather Smith at the Kimberley Food Bank.
Due to issues presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Bank is forced to operate quite differently this year for Christmas; a very important time of year for them and those they help out.
They aren’t able to put up their Angel Trees this year, and will not be giving out gifts or putting together Christmas hampers.
Instead, they will be working with local suppliers to create gift certificates for their clients to be able to buy their own hampers. Because of this, they’ve let the community know that they would prefer cash donations rather than food this year. Hintz’s donation was certainly welcome.
