Bank Independent collects food, supplies for local animal shelters

Feb. 11, Bank Independent will kick off its sixth annual Shelter Share drive to benefit local animal shelters. All branch locations will serve as donation points for pet food and supplies designated for local animal shelters.

The 2018 Shelter Share collected and distributed more than 1,175 items and more than $330 in donations to shelters in northwest Alabama.  Donations were used to supplement resources available to local shelters.

“Shelter Share drive was the heartfelt creation of team members who saw the need from local shelters for community assistance,” explained Macke Mauldin, president of Bank Independent. “So many of our team members are involved in fostering and rescuing shelter animals. Through volunteering, they recognized a need and took action to raise awareness. Bank Independent is proud to support Shelter Share as part of our Helping Hands initiative.”

Throughout the month of February, every Bank Independent sales office will accept donations of pet food, kitty litter, paper towels, nursing bottles, cleaning supplies, first aid items, used blankets, bedding and towels.

The donated supplies will be delivered by bank employees to the Athens Limestone County Animal Shelter, Colbert County Animal Shelter, Decatur Animal Services, Huntsville Animal Services, Morgan County Animal Shelter and Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter in early March.
