Purina holds charity event

Employees participated in the 23rd annual Purina Cares Day.

Nearly 2,000 Purina employees at Purina's St. Louis headquarters, along with 1,300 factory and sales associates nationwide, participated in the 23rd annual Purina Cares Day on May 23, dedicating a day to community service.

In partnership with the St. Louis Area Foodbank, Purina volunteers hosted a drive-through food pantry at Ballpark Village, distributing 29,000 pounds of food to over 300 families and their pets. Employees also engaged in various service projects, including neighborhood beautification, mental health support with therapy dogs, updating animal shelters, riverfront cleanup, building bicycles for youth and creating care packages for the homeless.

Outside St. Louis, associates from 24 factories and seven sales offices created pet enrichment toys, fleece blankets and adoption kits, and renovated local dog parks and pet shelters.

"Purina Cares Day exemplifies our commitment to being good neighbors," said Kim Beardslee, director of community affairs at Purina. "Our associates are dedicated to making a positive impact on both pets and people in need."

Purina donates over $30 million annually in financial grants and pet food and cat litter to support pet welfare agencies and nonprofits nationwide.
