Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its donation of a Yale® YA55-PT manual hand pallet truck to the Pet Food Pantry of Eastern North Carolina. Prior to the donation, Pet Food Pantry accumulated significant operating costs by regularly renting pallet trucks to process deliveries. Yale’s contribution enables them to completely remove that expense and dedicate more resources to their mission.
Pet Food Pantry is eastern North Carolina’s only dedicated, charitable pet food resource. The organization’s goal is to prevent the abandonment or surrender of cats and dogs when owners can no longer afford to feed them. It is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies completely on donations.
“For an organization like ours with limited resources to serve a large need, anything we can do to reduce operating expenses goes a long way,” says Kristen Below, Founder, Pet Food Pantry of Eastern NC. “As we celebrate national pet month, the donation from Yale helps us make an even bigger impact as the food bank for pets.”
The Yale® YA55-PT manual hand pallet truck provides the durability, easy-to-use features and ergonomic design that Pet Food Pantry needs to transport donations. It greatly increases the speed at which staff can handle large donations and its exceptional maneuverability allows the organization to make the most of available storage with tightly spaced pallet loads.
“It’s an honor to help Pet Food Pantry in their mission. They have a variety of smart, effective programs that make a tremendous impact on pet retention and quality of life in Greenville and the surrounding area,” says Chris Murtha, Brand Manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “Supporting them is a reflection of Yale’s commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen in the area we call home.”
