Strack and Van Til Donation Drive to Benefit Animal Organizations

Strack and Van Til encourages shoppers to stop, shop and adopt at the grocery chain’s first-ever donation drive for local animal organizations August 19 through 21. Donations made at 23 of the company’s store locations—including Ultra Foods and Town & Country stores—throughout the Chicagoland region will benefit local animal organizations.

Each store will feature pre-filled bags containing much-needed supplies for the animal organizations that customers can purchase and donate to the designated animal organization for that location.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, a representative from the animal organization will be on site to collect the donations and share information about their organization and the adoptable animals available. Additionally, some locations will feature animals available for adoption, as well as activities to benefit the organization.

Participating animal organizations include ABRA, Alsip to the Rescue, American Greyhound, CPR Fund K9 Rescue, DogaholicKs Rescue, Happy Tails Rescue, Humane Society Calumet Area, I Wanna Go Home Rescue, Lakeshore PAWS, Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Naperville Humane Society, Open Arms Rescue, River Valley Animal Rescue, South Suburban Humane Society, Treasured Friends Rescue and Will County Humane Society.
