"To commemorate the new FYZICAL location in Bangor, the clinic is holding a pet food and supply drive to benefit Eastern Area Agency on Aging’s Furry Friends Food Bank. Eastern Area Agency on Aging is dedicated to preserving the special bond between older adults and their pets by providing pre-packaged standardized bags of pet food and basic pet care supplies to low-income older adults monthly through the Furry Friends Food Bank (FFFB)."

"Pet food drives like these are crucial to sustaining our program as we hand out 12,000 pounds of pet food and litter every month".

Once collected, volunteers prepackage the food and supplies into kits and distribute them to people who have signed up through the Eastern Area Agency on Aging in Penobscot, Piscataquis, Washington, and Hancock counties.
