ST. CHARLES – In support of shelter animals, the Trellis Farm and Garden in St. Charles joined with the Wayne 4H Club from Waye-Dupage on April 19 to donate animal feed to local food pantries.
The club shopped using $75 at Trellis. Trellis matched the amount in free Purina dog and cat food to be donated by the club to the food pantry missions at Resurrection Church in Wayne and St. John’s Church in Winfield.
The missions serve families with pets that also need food.
Trellis also donated extra Purina dog and cat food bags for the cause.
Nicki Johnson of Wayne is the leader of the club and was thrilled with the amount of pet food that filled her van for donation, according to a news release.
4H Club is a youth organization administered by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
The goal of the club is to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills through a variety of programs.
Trellis Farm and Garden is located at 2N492 Kirk Road in St. Charles.
