Southwest Gas donates truck to BHS
The Barstow Humane Society will receive a new animal control vehicle thanks to Southwest Gas, according to a news release.
Southwest Gas is donating a truck to the Humane Society. The Ford F-150 that was used by the gas company will serve as a animal control vehicle for the Humane Society.
“At Southwest Gas, we are committed to our customers and to the communities we serve,” Bud Harris, Southern California Division vice president, stated on the release. “This commitment also includes working with local non-profit agencies such as the Barstow Humane Society. We’re pleased to be able to help the agency continue its care for animals in our community and we support the dedicated volunteers who contribute countless hours of service to the agency.”
Carlos Lemus, an officer at the Humane Society, said the truck will also be used to pick up donated dog and cat food from the WalMart Distribution Center. Lemus said over the past several months, the organization’s truck has not been running well, and that there have not been enough funds to fix it.
According to Lemus, the donated truck will help the Humane Society significantly. Lemus said it’s an honor that Southwest Gas is donating a truck to the non-profit organization.
Harris and Southwest Gas will present the Humane Society, located on 2480 Main Street, with the truck on Monday at 1:30 p.m.
