Blue Buffalo & Chewy.com Food Sign-Up
Time & Location
About The Event
We have been truly blessed this year with the Business Partners that are working with us. To end what has been a difficult year, we have the blessing of having available a good supply of Blue Buffalo Dry Cat Food, and also Blue Buffalo Dry Dog Food as well as Chewy.com mixed dry dog food pallets.
In order to respect the safety and health of our UPF Members, as well as our wonderful volunteers, we are NOT having large Distribution Eventsuntil times are safer. The transition will be to go smaller meetings of members....in numbers of 6 - 12 at a time, at designated times. To be flexible, we can also meet in even smaller numbers if it is needed at times other than is prescribed below....at the discretion of the UPF Volunteer(s) that would be meeting you. It also means that Forklift services may not always be available, and there would have to be hand-loading. These smaller meetings will allow you also to shop in Martha's Corner Store in a less-crowded / Social Distancing manner.
In order to avoid having pallets sit around in case people don't show up, we will not be assigning amounts to distribute before-hand. You will be assigned a specific Chewy.com pallet, or Blue Buffalo dry food the day that you show up. That also means that you will not know the exact amount owed until you check out. Please be patient with us while we adapt to this new system of Distribution of Resources.
Thank you again for all that you do!
