PAW Team received a huge donation of cat litter in June, and the story is a sweet one. Albertson’s was preparing to stock a shipment of cat litter when the marketing dept. called to say the product was fine but the label was not, so the load should be landfilled. Alberton’s Depot Manager, Bob, got wind of the situation and had a better idea: give the litter — all 23,000 lbs, aka 11 tons — to PAW Team.
The unfolding scene was a vision of commitment “with back in it.” The Portland Fire Bureau lent a flatbed truck to get the litter from the warehouse to PAW Team, and then volunteers worked furiously for two days, packing it up to the 2nd floor.
