Seveya Jepsen has been busy with the crayons and felts, making pictures of doggies and kitties.
With her best printing, the nine-year-old has added details about a special event she’s hosting this weekend.
By the time Seveya’s Pet Food Drive takes place on Saturday, March 6, the Brookswood girl whose family includes two cats, and a dog named Chester, will have just turned 10.
This is how she chose to mark her birthday.
“What I really want is to invite all my friends, and everyone at our church and everyone in the community to come by Brookswood Church,” she said “…For some people especially because of COVID, they might find it hard to take good care of their animals, and we need our animal friends more than ever.”
Parents Brady and Naomi, along with teen sister Vienna, are backing the little girl who is inviting everyone to swing by Brookswood Baptist Church, 20581 36th Ave., with donations to help out the Langley Food Bank and the SPCA.
“She just loves animals and wants to make a difference in our local community and help animals and people in these COVID times,” said her dad, Brady.
The event runs from 1 to 3 p.m. People are asked to bring such things as non-perishable wet and dry food for animals, non-perishable food for people, grocery gift cards, or cash for the organizations which can stretch monetary donations, offering more flexibility.
“Case lots if possible are much appreciated,” Brady noted.
The food bank wishlist includes:
Grocery store or general merchandise gift cards
Canned Meats and Fish
Canned Fruits and Vegetables
Sandwich Spreads (jam, peanut butter)
Rice and Pasta
Personal Care Products
Baby Food, Formula, and Cereal
Diapers (especially larger sizes)
