HAMPTON — Project Pawsitive, a Hampton-based 501(c)3 charity that provides extreme renovations to animal shelters and rescues on the verge of closure announced Thursday that the newest Flatbread Company located on High Street in Hampton will be holding a benefit in their honor from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
The charity will receive $3.50 for every large pizza ordered and $1.50 for every small pizza ordered, including take-out orders.
“We are so thrilled that Flatbread in Hampton is helping us,” said Jill Sullivan Grueter, President of Project Pawsitive. “We are raising money for our spring renovation at a local shelter and this benefit will help tremendously in our fundraising efforts.”
Project Pawsitive receives hundreds of applications from struggling animal shelters and rescues throughout New England each year. Since 2009, the team of friends from the Seacoast area have saved many local rescues from complete collapse and in some cases their renovations have kept shelters open and rescuing animals in need of adoption.
“Small animal shelters and rescues don’t have the money to put into their buildings,” said Sullivan Grueter. “They have to use all of their donations for the medical treatment and care of the animals they are saving, which is most important. But, when their building starts to fail, they are faced with a desperate situation. We want to take away the stress of worrying about an ailing facility. That’s our mission.”
