Doing their best to help out the environment – and those in need – the newest venture at Easterseals NJ’s Community Support Services (CSS) Adult Day Program in Oakhurst is Pillow Pet Beds!
The participants at Oakhurst CSS adult day program have been shredding paper for local animal shelters to use as cage bedding for quite some time. But now they are taking the endeavor to the next level by turning their shredding into pet beds.
By using pillowcases that are donated by staff, neighbors, and anyone who wants to help out, the participants fill the pillowcases with the shredded material and sew them up to make beds for the animal cages.
The program participants are having a great time participating in this new activity and getting so much enjoyment out of it. The Oakhurst site is asking for anyone who is doing spring cleaning and has gently-used pillowcases they no longer need to please donate them for this ongoing project. Arrangements can be made for collection sites with pickups as needed. Please spread the word to your friends and family to keep Easterseals in mind when doing their spring cleaning.
Thank you for your support of Oakhurst CSS’s newest venture to help the animals have a soft comfy bed to sleep in until they find their forever homes!
