KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The Trader Joe's store in Kalamazoo donated thousands of pounds of food to a local shelter after their refrigeration system went down Wednesday morning.

People who work at Kalamazoo Gospel Mission say the 35,000 pounds of food from the store is the largest donation they've ever seen. The ministry says it will make a huge difference, not only with more meals, but uplifting the spirits of the people they serve.

"They called us and we were able to mobilize a team within an hour that consisted of staff and volunteers," said Greg Weaver, Director of Food Service at the mission.

Trader Joe's Store Captain Daniel Sorscher says its the company's policy to do so, and also says they donate food daily to local shelters to help clear their shelves.

A nice post. Thanks.

There is an island, somewhere near Malaysia, where hunters would go to harvest turtle eggs as they were being laid. They would gather ALL the eggs and by way of thanks, turn the poor animal upside down to let her die of dehydration.

Now there are no turtles and no eggs there anymore. :-X

Orphaned baby cougar finds temporary home in conservation officer's garage.

'My wife really thinks it's quite special,' says Ron LeBlanc.

A baby cougar is currently living in a B.C. conservation officer's garage after it was found starving and frostbitten earlier this week under the deck of a home near Williams Lake, B.C.

The two-month-old cougar kitten will be moved to the Greater Vancouver Zoo on Monday.

Residents who were aware of the kitten called B.C. Conservation Officer Services on Sunday to report it and officers paid the cat a visit the next day. Sure enough, they found a young cougar hiding under the deck, beneath some chairs.

B.C. man digs out moose trapped upside down in roadside snowbank.

VANDERHOOF, B.C. -- A logging truck driver in British Columbia was taken by surprise when he saw four legs sticking out of the snow off the side of a road.

Wayne Rowley, 54, said he was driving down a forest service road near Vanderhoof last Thursday when what appeared to be a set of moose's legs in the snow caught his eye.

He pulled over to find a calf buried upside down in the snow and at first, Rowley said he thought it was dead.

Trenton Lewis' legs ached from the 11-mile walk he made every morning to get to his 4 a.m. shift. And yet the 21-year-old dutifully did it for seven long months.

He didn't tell anyone. He's never been one for excuses -- especially when it comes to providing for his 14-month-old daughter, Karmen.

"My pride is strong," he told CNN. "Whatever she needs, I'm the person who is supposed to provide it for her."
