This June, vote for aniMeals at OKRA Charity Saloon and help us feeds the pets of Meals on Wheels seniors like Evelyn.
Years ago, Evelyn was a nurse. She worked for MD Anderson and Memorial Hermann hospitals, and has special memories of her career. “I especially enjoyed working in the baby department. I love the babies.” Today, however, Evelyn struggles with her health. After two heart attacks and two strokes, Evelyn is paralyzed on her left side and has been unable to leave her home for the last three years. “I move very slowly and can only get up to go to the bathroom. I mostly watch TV all day.” Evelyn is also a recipient of aniMeals on Wheels for her puppy, Brandy. “Brandy never leaves my side. She is so precious to me, and I love her so much. I don’t know what I’d do without her.” Fortunately, aniMeals provides pet food for Brandy so that Evelyn is not forced to share her own food with her beloved companion.
There are hundreds of Meals on Wheels seniors like Evelyn that depend on aniMeals to provide their four-legged companions with food each month. This June, when you visit OKRA Charity Saloon, located in downtown Houston at 924 Congress Avenue, vote for aniMeals. The charity with the most votes at the end of the month will receive next month’s proceeds from OKRA!
Here’s how you can help:
1. When you visit OKRA Charity Saloon in June and purchase a drink, use your ticket and vote for aniMeals.
2. Host an event with friends and family at OKRA in June and encourage them to vote for aniMeals with each drink purchase.
3. Spread the word on your social media pages.
Your vote will help us feed the our aniMeals dogs and cats!
