The Center for Spiritual Living in Davis donated proceeds from a raffle to the Woodland Pet Food Pantry as its contribution to the inaugural World Day of Service on Saturday. Members of the center joined thousands of people across the world in service to their local communities.

Since May 2010, the Woodland Pet Food Pantry has distributed pet food twice each month to about 250 animals owned by locals who are homeless or struggling financially. Karen Vanderford, who facilitates a companion animal ministry at the center, chose the nonprofit agency as the beneficiary of the center’s fundraiser.

“Caring for our companion animals is important,” Vanderford said. “Our capacity to love those we have been given to provide for brings about more love and caring that is then reflected back to the whole community. I find that love in whatever form it is being shown is vital to the health and well-being of humans and animals.”

Two members of the center, Clara Bertucci and Chris Kitinoya, stepped forward to organize a raffle to raise money for the pet food and the funds were presented Saturday to Polly Nelson, one of the pet food pantry’s founders, by the center’s practitioners, Vanderford and Betty Cooper.

World Day of Service immediately follows the World Day of Prayer and is sponsored by a like-minded organization, Unity.

“World Day of Service is a way for us to be God in action in our community,” said the Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon, the spiritual leader for Centers for Spiritual Living, the international New Thought organization with which the Davis center is affiliated. “So, we pray on Friday and then take action on Saturday. This day is about being a living example of our belief that we are all connected and that together we can transform lives in our community and around the world.”

The Center for Spiritual Living, Davis, meets for services Sunday at noon at 1715 Anderson Road.
