On August 26, 2021, we mourned the passing of Phyllis E. Sweeney, one of Habitat for Cats’ founding members and a friend of the Westport community.
To pay tribute to Phyllis, her family and friends coordinated with Habitat for Cats to plan a charitable cat food donation event in her home town of Westport. The event, called “Bag of Kindness” features the donation of a bag filled with cat food to in-need senior clients of the Westport Coalition of Aging (COA) from Oct to Dec 2022.
A custom reusable bag was designed and purchased by one of Phyllis’ friends. HFC volunteers made arrangements with the COA and packaged the bags for distribution.
Each bag represents a remembrance of Phyllis, her kindness and her devotion to cats in need.
