For many families, pets provide unconditional love, and this is especially true for seniors. Pet owners experience joy and a sense of companionship. However, seniors on fixed incomes can sometimes find it hard to afford buying food for themselves and their pets. As a result, many seniors will skip their own lunches or dinners so their pets have something to eat. To help seniors in this position, Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco is excited to organize a donation drive that will support the Meals on Wheels Collin County Paws Program. The program provides support to home-bound seniors by delivering meals for them and their pets. The senior living community is asking the public to drop off any size canned or dry cat food, cat litter and cat treats, as well as any size canned or dry dog food, dog treats, pet toys and pet store/supply gift cards. The assisted living and memory care community encourages people who live in Frisco and the surrounding areas to drop off donations between November 26 and December 20 at Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco (1200 W Main Street in Frisco) inside House C and F, Monday through Sunday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
“We are thrilled to organize this donation drive that will help ensure local seniors don’t have to share their food with their furry friends,” said Beth Babcock, executive director at Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco. “We hope the public joins our efforts by helping us collect the necessary items.”
With the holidays approaching, many people are searching for ways to give back to the local community, and Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco is proud to offer a helping hand to an organization dedicated to assisting seniors. The team and residents always looks for ways to help others, whether it’s a school supply drive for local teachers, writing appreciation letters to soldiers overseas or handmaking blankets for premature babies in a local hospital.
“We believe in doing our part to help our neighbors and the greater community around us,” said Babcock. “Many of our residents grew up with animals and enjoy their companionship. When we told them about this donation drive, they were excited to become part of the effort. We hope the local public will join us because every donation goes a long way. “
