The 25-foot vehicle will be parked at Ferg’s in downtown St. Petersburg Saturday, May 16
ST. PETERSBURG, FL— Gary and Mary Sirmons of St. Petersburg are asking the community to “Fill up the RV” with donations to the Kind Mouse and Pet Pal Animal Shelter on May 16. They are parking their 25-foot Thor Class A RV at Ferg’s Sports Bar & Grill at 1320 Central Ave. as a collection site for drive-by drop off donations between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Normally, the Sirmons would be preparing to drive the RV to the upper peninsula of Michigan for the summer. They were sitting on their sofa last week and thought: “With it just sitting there why not use it for a great cause and fill it up with donations for charity,” Gary Sirmons said.
The Sirmons chose Pet Pal because that’s where they adopted their beloved Garth, a frisky Boston Terrier. They chose The Kind Mouse because Gary knew Kind Mouse founder Gina Wilkins through the Northeast Exchange Club.
“She’s very determined and driven to make sure the children of Tampa Bay never go hungry,” he said.
Ferg’s is right next to Tropicana Field. The Rays aren’t playing right now, but the community can step in in the shadow and hit a home run for children and animals by filling up the RV!
Ferg’s will donate a coupon $5 off coupon to each donor as they Fill the RV. It can be used on a $25 tab at the restaurant.
The Kind Mouse needs boxes of individual serving size:
