Apollo Glass Gives Back
Apollo Glass is passionate about supporting our community and the wonderful resources it has to offer. Starting in 2019, we have decided we will “put our money where our mouth is” and donate a portion of our profits to local organizations each quarter. We are proud to be a part of a community that supports one another and want to help deserving organizations serve those in need.
For the third quarter of 2019, we are happy to support Crossroads Animal Shelter, which has provided homes for thousands of animals in the Wright County area since 1999. A non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that operates on limited resources and contributions from animal-lovers, the group focuses on animal welfare, education, fundraising and volunteering.
Humble Beginnings. In September of 1999, a small group of volunteers with many years of experience caring for animals met with a vision to build a new shelter to help abandoned animals in Wright County. With an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 in the first year, they were amazed and humbled to procure three times the amount and gifted a parcel of land for a new facility. In January 2002, Crossroads Animal Shelter opened to the public with space for more than 30 cats and 20 dogs.
Adoption Opportunities. To date, Crossroads has helped home nearly 10,000 pets. The organization hosts local events, and a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Interested in adopting a new pet? Check out the current pets ready for new homes here or visit the center during open hours each weekend. Contribute to Crossroads via donation, volunteering, or providing pet supplies by visiting their donation page.
First Apollo Gives Back Recipient. A special shout out to the team at the Buffalo Food Shelf, our second quarter Apollo Gives Back recipient. This incredible local resource serves over 400 families each month in our area. It is a Christian, non-profit, community-based organization supplementing food and hygiene items to those who need it most. Apollo Glass was pleased to donate $500 to the Buffalo Food Shelf in July.
Apollo Glass is thrilled to support such incredible resources in our community. We look forward to contributing to other local organizations in the coming years. #apolloglassgivesback
