March, 2015: Thank you to Kroger for sending us another quarterly check from their Community Rewards Program. We are very grateful for their continued support in helping us to help the animals. If you shop at Kroger, please read the area highlighted below that tells you how easy it is to register and help us earn money from Kroger, just by your shopping there!
January, 2015: We would like to express a big thank you to Consumers Energy Foundation for their continuous support in 2014. We received two grants of $250 each from their "Caring For Community" program which recognizes volunteer service provided by at least five Consumers Energy employees/retirees at a fundraising event. One was received for our annual Bowl For The Animals event and the other was for our annual Craft-A-Rama event. We were also awarded a $300 grant from their foundation due to their "Volunteer Investment Program." We are very grateful for these generous donations as well as the time and talent that these wonderful volunteers gave to "Friends" to help support our fundraisers. THANK YOU!
DO YOU SHOP ON AMAZON.COM? If you shop on Amazon.com you could help Friends Of The Animals in an easy way that would cost you nothing and take very little time! We are signed up as a non-profit that is eligible for their AmazonSmile Foundation program. Please go to smile.amazon.com and register your name with our organization as the non profit group you have selected to receive donations and with any purchase you make on their website, the foundation will send Friends a portion of your purchase price...at no cost to you! You place your orders EXACTLY as you would with Amazon.com but instead, be sure to go to the smile.amazon.com site instead. You only need to register once and then all purchases you make from that site will have a small credit go to us. Please help us to help the animals! Thank you.
