CSR Spotlight: Halloween Dog Walk
On the Sunday before Halloween, members of Roux’s New York office and their four-legged friends got into the spirit of Halloween to help a local animal shelter. Roux pups and their humans put on their spookiest outfits and participated in a walk around the lake at Belmont Lake State Park. For each dog in costume, a donation was made to Bobbi and the Strays, a non-profit, no-kill organization in Nassau county that rescues and provides essential care for orphaned, stray, abused, and special needs cats and dogs. Our Roux participants and their friends brought cat and dog food, blankets, and toys to donate to the shelter—along with many generous monetary donations.
Both man and friend enjoyed tasty treats and fresh air during a fun, socially distanced event, and prizes were awarded for the best dog and human costumes. Thanks to our Roux friends and family, we were able to raise $4,000 for Bobbi and the Strays!
