Rockland — The Loyal Biscuit Co. created the Fenway Fund during it's 10th year of business as a way of providing financial support to the community's needs.

“Named after our beloved logo, my dog Fenway, it is funded by proceeds of sales within our seven retail locations as well as from the sales of our signature coffee, Fenway’s Rescue Blend from the Coffee Hound Coffee Co.” stated Heidi Neal, the co-owner of Loyal Biscuit Co.

Fenway Fund grants are awarded bi-annually to 501c3 state organizations that benefit animals. Proposals are reviewed and winners are selected by a committee of Loyal Biscuit Co. team members.

“The fund is a vital way for our Company to support animal welfare within our communities by providing seed money for projects in Maine. The committee will be looking for projects which often fall below funding availability; projects that we believe will help better the lives of animals in the State of Maine,” Neal said.

To date, $21,100 has been awarded to seven organizations. Projects have varied from the addition of a new feline recovery room at the PAWS Animal Adoption Center, a new website for the Underhound Railroad, to the purchase of an ultrasound machine for the Humane Society Waterville Area.

The application for the fund is available online at loyalbiscuit.com/the-fenway-fund. Applications must be submitted by Sunday, Feb. 28, in order to be considered for the review process.
