Bank Independent’s 10th annual shelter share ready to kick off
Bank Independent will kick off its 10th annual Shelter Share drive to benefit local animal shelters on May 1. All locations of Bank Independent will serve as donation points for pet food and supplies designated for local animal shelters. The drive will end on May 19th with Adoption Day as Bank Independent will sponsor the adoption application fee for animals adopted from partner shelters.
In Madison, Bank Independent is located at 7564 Hwy 72 West. They also have locations in Huntsville, at the MidCity District and at 225 Holmes Ave in the downtown area.
The 2022 Shelter Share collected and distributed over 740 items and more than $11,175 in donations to shelters in northwest Alabama last year. Donations were used to supplement resources available to local shelters. Additionally, the Bank sponsored 81 pet adoptions across partner animal shelters.
“Bank Independent is proud to support Shelter Share as part of our Helping Hands Foundation,” says Rick Wardlaw, CEO of Bank Independent. “We are proud to partner with the local shelters in our footprint so that our team members and customers have an opportunity to give back. These shelters rely heavily on community support to meet the needs of the animals in their care, and we are proud to be a small part of that backing.”
Between May 1 – 19, 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, HOPE in Franklin County, Decatur Animal Services, Huntsville Animal Services, Lawrence County Animal Shelter, Morgan County Animal Shelter and Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter in early March.
