FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – This month, veterinarians from Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists are helping people and pets in South Florida by donating approximately 2,400 pounds of turkey to the Pantry of Broward.
The turkeys will help the Pantry of Broward, feed families in-need throughout the busy Thanksgiving holiday.
The Pantry of Broward is a charitable organization that provides 55 pound boxes of food to more than 400 families in Broward County each month. The charity also assists each family through routine meetings with the pantry’s clinical director. The meetings are used to address additional nutritional needs and assist families with applying for and obtaining government assistance.
“We are so proud to be able to help the Pantry of Broward and the families that rely on their efforts,” said Dr. Ira Zaslow, a board-certified specialist in veterinary emergency and critical care and medical director of Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists.
Individuals interested in helping the Pantry of Broward provide meals to those in need this holiday season can drop off non-perishable food items at Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists or at the pantry’s 610 NW Third Avenue location.
