No Hungry Senior
–No Hungry Senior (Catholic Charities)
No Hungry Senior is a collaboration led by MIFA in partnership with the Aging Commission, Mid-South Food Bank, Catholic Charities of West Tennessee, Memphis Jewish Federation, Common
Table Heath Alliance and Baptist Health Care and Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare.

The KPAW program (which stands for “Kids Promoting Animal Welfare”) is a unique volunteer program aimed at getting young people in our community interested in animal welfare. In order to be accepted into the program, potential KPAW volunteers must attend a KPAW orientation, and then submit a fundraising plan to the Volunteer Manager for approval. The fundraising plan should be a way to raise money or donations for the HSMSC off-property, and could be a can drive at school, a bake sale, a neighborhood dog washing station, etc. The fundraising plan must happen within the first three months of membership in the KPAW program.
KPAW Orientations are held the 3rd Saturday of every month at Noon at the Humane Society. Volunteers must fill out an application and have a waiver of liability signed by a parent and pay $20 for their annual membership and t-shirt. KPAW orientation does require pre-registration, which is done by emailing email@example.com.
