The Red Bank Seniors on the Go are giving back to the animals of Chattanooga.
The group, which meets at the Red Bank Community Center on Mondays and Thursdays each week, raised money for the past several weeks to donate to the Pet Placement Center on Dayton Boulevard.
“Once a year we try to have a drive for the Pet Placement Center,” said group member Gerald Wilson. “We did pretty good last year; we got a lot of cat food, dog food, towels and cleaning supplies. This year we are mostly giving money.”
Wilson said the donation amounts to about $250, but he also knows other group members have donated directly to the Pet Placement Center as well. Otherwise, donations were typically given at the group sign-in table at the community center.
