M&T Bank announced their corporate sponsorship of St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. The bank’s $5,000 platinum-level sponsorship will fund the center’s Food Bank for Pet Families in Need, which collects, organizes, and delivers food and supplies to struggling pet parents.

“St. Hubert’s Food Bank for Pet Families in Need is about much more than collecting goods, it’s about keeping families together,” says Vincent Moretti, Vice President, Senior Relationship Manager at M&T Bank and board member of St. Hubert’s. “When struggling financially, pet parents often face the impossible decision of giving up their animals due to lack of resources. We are proud to help St. Hubert’s offer critical assistance to keep pets with their families.”

The Food Bank for Pet Families in Need is a significant component of St. Hubert’s community outreach efforts. Goods are collected and organized by St. Hubert’s, loaded into the organization’s van, and distributed to partner locations on a regular basis, standing ready to fulfill emergency needs in between deliveries. St. Hubert’s currently partners with ten recipient organizations, including The Salvation Army Dover Corps, Morristown Community Soup Kitchen, Interfaith Food Pantry, and Somerset Food Bank Network.

“The Food Bank for Pet Families in Need serves to ensure families aren’t forced to surrender their pets when they face financial hardship,” says Heather Cammisa, president and CEO of St. Hubert’s. “We’re grateful for M&T Bank’s support to further reduce the number of companion animals who find themselves homeless simply because their families have fallen on hard times. This sponsorship will make a strong impact on this facet of St. Hubert’s Pet Retention services.”

St. Hubert’s other community services include pet adoption and animal rescue, humane education, a pet helpline, pet training, professional education, animal-assisted therapy, and pet loss support. As a platinum sponsor, M&T Bank’s funds will contribute to the organization’s general operating expenses as well its selection of the Food Bank for Pet Families in Need.
