Recently, the Australian bush fire has been the main headline sweeping across news channels and social media feeds. Millions of animals were displaced, orphaned or worse. While something so catastrophic that is miles away may seem untouchable, Penn Emblem wanted to do their part, big or small. 

In wake of the tragedy, The Animal Rescue Collective Craft Guild began collecting various items for the surviving animals in Australia, such as bat wraps, nests, kangaroo pouches and koala mittens, made from gently used materials, old blankets, towels and more. Meanwhile, local crafters have joined forces across the country to collect materials and sew together the items to be donated. 

Penn Emblem hosted a two-week collection in its corporate office to collect as many gently used materials as possible to donate to the generous crafters who are working tirelessly on the protective items for the animals. 

Within those 2 weeks over seventy blankets, sheets and towels were collected, filling 4 large garbage bags to be donated to the crafters to support their efforts. Penn Emblem is proud to have been able to give our small contribution as quickly as possible so that no more harm can come to the suffering Australian animals.
