Carolina Waterfowl Rescue, a wildlife rescue organization based in Charlotte, N.C., rehabilitates and shelters injured and abandoned birds by the hundreds every day and by the thousands every year. When the non-profit animal rescue received the abrupt news that a former donor will no longer provide food donations for the animals, Carolina Waterfowl found itself in the same situation as its thousands of animal inhabitants: abandoned and in need of immediate help. That's when Food Lion stepped in.
After discovering this news from social media, Food Lion felt it was only right to reach out and lend a "paw" to its fellow furry friends at Carolina Waterfowl. Last week, through its hunger-relief initiative, Food Lion Feeds made a $250 donation in wild bird food for the organization to feed its family of rescue animals. The grocer also donated $250 to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina for its pet hunger program.
Carolina Waterfowl took to social media to express its gratitude for Food Lion's gift during this organization's dire time of need.
"The managers from the Hemby Bridge store came over personally today and delivered a whole truckload of bird seed!!" Carolina Waterfowl posted to its Facebook page. "We are so fortunate to have people in our community who care about the rescue and the animals."
Food Lion Feeds is proud to partner with local non-profits and show support hunger-relief efforts for all. The grocer thanks Carolina Waterfowl Rescue for its commitment to serving the community and local wildlife of the Charlotte area.
