The Petco Foundation grants totaling more than $30 million in funding for animal welfare is the highest annual funding total in the foundation’s history.  The financial grants are in addition to $2 million in product donations. In total, 2770 organizations across the U.S. benefited.  A primary focus in 2015 was supporting organizations that inspire and transform their communities to reduce euthanasia of pets.

Recipients recognized for their lifesaving achievements and their relentless determination to eliminate needless euthanasia of animals in their communities include:

  • LifeLine Animal Project, an Atlanta-based, private non-profit that took over operations of two county facilities just a few years ago when euthanasia rates were over 65%. Because LifeLine has been able to inspire the community to participate in their lifesaving work, they are saving close to 90% of the 16,000 animals they care for each year at two of Atlanta’s oldest sheltering facilities.
  • Kansas City Pet Project, a newly formed organization that created excitement and hope for Kansas City and the 10,000-plus animals entering their city shelter. After assuming operations in 2012, the Kansas City Pet Project has been saving over 90% of the animals and has put their city on the national map as a leader and example of a successful lifesaving community.
  • Front Street Animal Shelter, the City of Sacramento animal shelter that has put itself on the map for its creative outreach activities. Efforts have spurred an entire community to take action and participate by fostering and volunteering to help care for more than 11,000 community animals each year. Front Street’s approach has made it one of the most engaging city shelters and created an international social media following that has contributed to the increase in its lifesaving rate from just 25% five years ago to 83% today.
  • Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter(BARCS), led by Jen Brause, whose determination to succeed despite very unfavorable conditions has been nothing less than heroic in changing the horrific 98% euthanasia rate in 2005 into a 85% save rate through the early part of 2016. BARCS is striving to save even more of the 11,000-plus animals entering its facility annually.

Significant support was provided to other up-and-coming organizations transforming communities such as the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association (WV), Animal Care Centers of NYC, HALO Animal Rescue (Phoenix), Charleston Animal Society (SC) and The Animal Foundation (Las Vegas), in addition to many smaller rescue groups that support these lifesaving efforts.


The Petco Foundation, believes that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999,more than $167 million has been invested with more than 4,000 animal welfare partners. The goal is to inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay/neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives.

With more than 50 years of service to pet parents, Petco is a leading pet specialty retailer that focuses on nurturing powerful relationships between people and pets. We operate more than 1,430 Petco locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico, including more than 115 Unleashed by Petco locations, a smaller format neighborhood shop; prescription services and pet supplies from the leading veterinary-operated pet product supplier, Drs.

Kmart has been the top corporate sponsor for the March of Dimes for 33 years. The Zika contribution is just a small portion of the more than $140 million raised by Kmart since 1983.

 

“Kmart is the gold standard for corporate philanthropy,” says Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes. “For 33 years Kmart, their associates and customers, have helped give every baby a fighting chance and now they are leading the fight against the Zika virus.”

As part of the campaign, March of Dimes issued the top 5 tips for Zika Prevention (#ZAPzika):

  1. Use spray, keep mosquitoes away: make sure it’s EPA registered.
  2. Say you will, embrace the chill: use air conditioning and window screens if possible.
  3. If it’s wet, it’s a threat: remove still water.
  4. Get protected, not infected: wear clothes to prevent bites. Use a condom to prevent sexual transmission.
  5. If you suspect, then connect: call your health care provider if you are at risk of infection.

Sears has launched its ninth annual Heroes at Home campaign with Rebuilding Together, a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing, to raise funds and assist military families facing hardship. This year the program will enable critical repairs, improvements or modifications to the largest VFW Post in Colorado and single-family military family homes across the United States of decorated veterans of World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom and more.

Heroes at Home, which has raised nearly $20 million over the past eight years via donations from Shop Your Way members, customers and Sears associates, has funded more than 1,600 home rebuilds.

“When we meet these veterans and their families during rebuild projects they overwhelm us with their incredible spirit and appreciation,” said Joelle Maher, president and chief member officer at Sears. “Though many served long ago, it’s clear the spirit of service has stayed with them for a lifetime. That’s why supporting America’s veterans has long been a part of Sears’ DNA and we’re so proud of the dedication and support our members and associates show in giving back to those who have given so much.”

According to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, about 1.4 million veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.

This spring, dozens of military family homes will be rebuilt thanks to the Heroes at Home program. Among these projects is the Lowry Post 501 in Aurora, Colorado, which is the largest VFW Post in the state with an active membership of 340 veterans. The post serves veterans’ communities throughout the Denver area offering advocacy and advice to disabled veterans or those who have suffered adverse medical conditions as a result of their service. Through a Heroes at Home grant, Lowry Post 501 will receive a new fence, many interior drywall and accessibility modifications, and a new mural on the building’s exterior.

Now through July 30, Sears is calling upon Shop Your Way members and customers nationwide to donate at their local Sears store or online via a link at sears.com/heroesathome. All funds raised go to Rebuilding Together.

“At Rebuilding Together, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy home, especially our veterans and their families,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “The need is dire, and with partners like Sears we are able to bridge the gap in services available to veterans, providing critical repairs and modifications that ensure our veterans can live in safe, sustainable and accessible homes.”

Other examples of the nationwide Heroes at Home projects that Rebuilding Together will complete this spring include:

  • Chicago – Repairing leaks in the basement and roof of the house of a Vietnam veteran’s widow whose family’s tradition of service to America includes a son who also served in the Navy for seven years and a grandson currently stationed in Alaska with the Air Force.
  • Baltimore – Updating the home with new appliances, repairing the electrical outlets throughout the home and installing handrails for an Army veteran.
  • Baton Rouge, Louisiana – Repairing the home of a Navy veteran who is a double amputee (legs) and single parent caring for his special needs child. A tree recently fell on a portion of his roof, causing severe structural damage.
  • Miami – Numerous repairs, accessibility additions and pest abatement for the home of a 93 year-old World War II Army veteran and his wife of 68 years, who have lived in the house for 49 years.

Companies within the Sears Holdings family employ more than 25,000 veterans and more than 1,500 active members of the Reserve and National Guard. For more information about Heroes at Home, to make a donation and volunteer, visit sears.com/heroesathome.

Today we are happy to share this blog from Walmart Employee Steve Outain, Reverse Logistics, Walmart

walmart-logo

When your job is helping a company find ways to achieve zero waste across its global operations, you have to look beyond the obvious for opportunities. Who knew that this year, a plastic Easter basket could be one?

Walmart operates bakeries in the majority of its stores across the U.S., so we produce a lot of cakes and cupcakes. So many, in fact, that frosting is delivered to our stores in 3- to 5-gallon plastic buckets. And the last thing we want is for that constant stream of plastic to end up in a landfill, so we started looking for ways to turn something that was once thought of as trash into a valuable commodity.

This year, Olivet International stepped to the plate, helping us turn 119,000 pounds of resin – derived 100% from our empty frosting buckets – into a line of plastic Easter baskets that recently debuted in our stores. In creating them, we found a way to introduce those empty buckets back into the manufacturing stream, while also lowering the retail price of these Easter baskets to just 88 cents.

While this represents a huge win, the best news is that it didn’t just start with Easter 2016. Over the past several years, we’ve worked to change the specifications of our frosting buckets to make them as recycle-friendly as possible. As a result, we’re working with suppliers to turn this steady stream of post-consumer resin into 2.5 million plastic pet bowls annually, plastic liners for 4 million soft-sided coolers annually and more.

The opportunities aren’t just tied to our frosting buckets. We already use discarded hangers from our apparel department to manufacture the Mainstays packs of plastic hangers sold in our home department. We’ve gone from contracting with recycling companies to purchase the by-product generated in our stores, to creating solutions directly with suppliers. In doing so, we’re finding opportunities to re-engineer the ways products are made in the first place, making it easier to close the loop on the back end.

I’m proud to work for a company that’s helping create solutions for a better tomorrow. These solutions are good for people, planet – and business.
