Last month PetSmart Charities' made a generous pet food donation to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank with plans to distribute the free pet food throughout August at various locations across El Paso.

El Pasoans who need help feeding their pets can pick up a full-size bag of pet food, thanks to PetSmart Charities’ donation of dry dog and cat food.

The pet food distribution couldn’t come at a better time as families continue to face economic hardships from the ongoing pandemic. The current health crisis also extends to family pets, as pet owners struggle to feed their pets as they try to catch up on their overdue bills.
