A storage facility in Monroeville will host a fundraiser for two local organizations this weekend.

Guardian Storage at 4711 William Penn Highway will host an event to raise money for Animal Friends and The Education Partnership. That location, one of 17 in the region, opened in August 2017.

Animal Friends, of Ohio Township, is an animal rescue and pet adoption agency. The Education Partnership, based in Pittsburgh's West End, helps local students obtain basic school supplies.

There will be two food trucks and Kona's Shaved Ice, a petting area with animals from the pet adoption agency, a balloon artist, face painting, green screen photographs, baked goods, local vendors and a 50/50 raffle.

All animals in the petting area will be available for adoption, said Nikki Bandurski, a Guardian Storage spokeswoman.

“We try to align ourselves with organizations that have a heart for the community. So we try to tailor to the ones that are most supported there,” Bandurski said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
