How can you make a difference in your community and help others? Ask the Clay County 4-H'ers who created the PAWS Program.
The Clay County 4-H'ers learned that limited income seniors at local meal sites were taking food home to share with pets because of their inability to purchase pet food. As a result the seniors were not recieving nutrition provided in the meals. Together with the Clay County Council on Aging, Meals on Wheels, and Halo Pet Food Company, they created the "Paws Program" and distributed over 1400 cases of canned pet food to over 87 seniors enrolled in the program.
