Ford of Kirkland is collecting pet food for the Pet Food Bank at the Seattle Humane Society. The Pet Food Bank is in desperate need of donations. It supplies more than 15,000 pounds of pet food a month to low-income families and seniors, allowing them to keep beloved pets in spite of financial difficulties.

“Pets provide comfort and companionship, especially in challenging times,” said Jim Walen, dealer principal at Ford of Kirkland. “We do a lot to support our local community and this is just another way for us to help make a difference.”

The pet food drive runs through Nov. 22. Donations can be dropped off at Ford of Kirkland’s north show room at 11800 124th Ave. NE in Kirkland.

On Nov. 22, Ford C-MAX and Escape vehicles will be loaded up with the supplies and will be driven to the food bank for delivery.

Seattle-area blogger Rachel Roland will be documenting the progress of the pet food drive via her blog at www.smallstepsonourjourney.com.
