Cummings Properties Community Giving Program  Donates $1000 to the Friends of Beverly Animals

On November 26, Chris Reilly, Associate Leasing Officer for Cummings Properties, and a recent graduate of Endicott College, presented Heidi Roberts, President and Founder of Friends of Beverly Animals, with a check for $1000. As part of the Cummings Community Giving Program, each year employees are given the sum to donate to the charity of their choice. Chris, who owns two dogs, chose FOBA because it is the only animal charity in the City of Beverly.

Friends of Beverly Animals, which began in 2007, is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help the city’s homeless animals. It is run entirely by kind volunteers who take them into their homes and find good homes for the many animals in need (mostly cats, since the city handles dogs). The organization pays for veterinary care, food and supplies until the animals are adopted into their new homes.

Ms. Roberts and the FOBA volunteers hope to someday soon have an animal shelter in Beverly, where none currently exists. She believes that it would not be difficult for the City of Beverly to provide a small city-owned building, as the towns of Marblehead and Ipswich did to get started; both now have their own shelters.

The Friends of Beverly Animals wants to express sincere appreciation to Chris Reilly and Cummings Properties for this wonderful gift, and to all volunteers and supporters who make their rescue and adoption placement work possible.
