Town families pinched by harsh economic times are not the only ones hurt by a drop in money for groceries, their pets are too. Monroe Food Pantry is seeking donations to feed the 55 cats and 35 dogs owned by families struggling to make ends meet.

Drop off boxes around town are being used to collect donations of toys, kibble and canned pet food (not from China).

Boxes can be found in the Monroe Town Hall lobby, at Choice Pet Supply at Century Plaza, 535 Monroe Turnpike — donations receive a 20 percent discount; Linda's Story Time, 447 Monroe Turnpike; and the Dunkin Donuts on Elm Street.

The pantry is hoping to receive the donations by Dec. 20, in time for Christmas.
