Bentley's Pet Stuff is Donating All Sales in Ohio to the Hunter Memorial
From Feb. 4 through Feb. 8, 2019, Bentley’s Pet Stuff will be donating all of its Ohio store sales to the Hunter Memorial.
The donations will support the family of Hunter Wesley, a 12-year-old boy from Science Hill, Ky. who lost his life on Jan. 30 trying to rescue his dog, Pugley, from the family’s burning home.
“I was on my lunch break when I found out about this brave boy’s tragic death,” said Nicole Johnson, an employee at Bentley's Pet Stuff in Cherry Grove, Ohio.
“I called our vice president of business development, Giovanni Senafe, to see if there was anything we could do. I was so happy by how much they wanted to help!”
Senafe has pledged to donate a week’s worth of sales from all Ohio stores to the Hunter Memorial. In addition, stores will accept cash donations through Bentley’s “Round up to Rescue,” renamed the “Hunter Memorial Fund,” for the week. Customers are invited to round up their purchases to the next dollar amount for a special cause.
“This is a devastating time for Hunter's family, as well as the community,” said Senafe. “We wanted to help and also to find a way to honor Hunter’s love of animals. We are so proud of our employees who look out to help the communities we serve. It’s a deeply-held company value. Nicole saw an opportunity for our support and reached out to see how we could help.”
Donations to the Hunter Memorial Fund will be accepted at all Bentley's Pet Stuff Ohio locations.
