Philanthropy

Over the years, I have been happy to support our local community and charitable causes. We’ve fed firefighters during September 11th, donated proceeds to Hurricane Katrina efforts, and sponsored non-interventional veterinary research at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. I am always looking for new friendships and partnerships to form that can help those in need. A few causes I support:

Bite Me Cancer

Bite Me Cancer was formed as a nonprofit foundation in September, 2010, by Nikki Ferraro, who was 17-years old at the time. Nikki was diagnosed with a rare form of thyroid cancer in April 2010 when she was a junior at Chantilly HS in Virginia. Nikki was determined to lead a Relay for Life team just two weeks after her diagnosis. She named the team Bite Me Cancer and experienced immediate success. Saint Germain Catering has created a dozen of decorated cupcakes to help raise money for Thyroid Cancer in teens. The proceeds from the sales will be donated to Bite Me Cancer.

Battle Mammary Cancer in Dogs

The 25TH Project

The purpose for The 25th Project is to provide essentials for the homeless once a month. Most of us get busy with our lives and forget the need that is out there in the community. On the 25th of each month they have the opportunity to serve the homeless. The 25th Project feels that we can effectively help others for not only this year but for years to come. Saint Germain Catering is proud to sponsor food donation and other supplies such as tents and blankets throughout the year to this organization.

Operation Homefront DC

Saint Germain Catering cares about military families and has donated $25,000 to Operation Homefront DC. This organization works to support military families in the Washington DC area.

Penn Vet Working Dog Center

Man’s best friend works as hard as man – and needs similar support! Saint Germain Catering has given a $1,500 donation for K-9 training products. With the love and support of a working dog, there’s nothing the police can’t accomplish.

Dog Anesthesiology Research

Dogs get sick and need relief from pain just like any human. Saint Germain Catering has given a $2,500 donation to help conduct a study on how best to administer pain medication to dogs.

Interventional Paws

Our very own CEO, Mina, has started this non-profit to help needy pet owners get the veterinary care necessary for their beloved animals. Veterinary care can be expensive, and Saint Germain Catering is happy to help!

Ovarian Cancer Detection Program

The Penn Vet Working Dog Center, Penn Physics Department, Penn Medicine’s Division of Gynecologic Oncology, and the Monell Chemical Senses Center have joined together to study ovarian cancer detection by dogs and e-sensors. Saint Germain Catering is proud to sponsor the work of one of these cancer detection canines, McBaine, a Springer Spaniel. To date we have donated over $10,000 to provided continued training
