4PetSake opens up with charity events

MOHAWK, N.Y. (WKTV) - A new food pantry is about to open up in the Mohawk Valley. This one is all about the pets. "4PetSake" will provide dog and cat food to people struggling to get by.

On Saturday, the organization was raising money for the cause inside the Mohawk Antiques Mall with a flea market.

President Kristine Wilson Wilson hopes the new non-profit can help out many members of the community. She said, "Senior citizens need help. Our veterans need help. People are losing their job and the worst thing they have to do is surrender your pet."

Next weekend is the grand opening with another fundraiser happening at the same time, 11am to 2pm. Bring your antiques for appraisal, which costs $3 an item. All of the money will benefit the pantry, which is located at 100 East Main Street in Mohawk
