ACS Participates in the 2020 Staffworks Fund Save A Life Campaign

The Animal Care Sanctuary (ACS) is pleased to announce its participation in the 2020 Staffworks Fund Save A Life Campaign, which will be matching your donations to ACS from November 30 through December 31.

This year, the Save A Life Campaign has 39 participating animal welfare organizations located in 17 counties in New York State and Pennsylvania.

Campaign Match:

  • FIRST $10,000 in donations = $10,000 match
  • PLUS $1,000 for every additional $5,000 in donations
  • PLUS $2,000 for reaching $100,000 in donations
  • $30,000 TOTAL POTENTIAL!

Since 2014, the Save A Life Campaign has raised more than $3.1 million for non-profit organizations caring for at-risk animals in our regional community, with donors contributing more than $2.1 million to secure matching funds from the Staffworks Fund.

“As our rescue efforts continue during the pandemic, and with the cancellation of all community events, the timing of our participation in the Safe A Life Campaign, could not happen at a better time. We are delighted to be selected as a Save A Life Campaign partner. Thank you Staffworks Fund for providing this critical support!” – Ellen Feldman, ACS Board President.

“With the help of our supporters, our goal is to achieve the full $30,000 total matched potential” – Terri McKendry, ACS Executive Director.

“COVID has significantly affected fundraising efforts for many organizations that provide direct care and support services for homeless and abused animals. While they are devoted to helping underserved animals, they cannot provide crucial services without our donations. Funds raised and matched during this Campaign will sustain these organizations’ operations and programs through 2021.” – Anita Vitullo, founder of the Save A Life Campaign.
