LIBERTY — Kravitz Deli’s National Deli Month celebration raised $500 for the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County.

Kravitz Deli sold about 150 box lunches in August. Jack Kravitz, president of Kravitz Deli, added a donation to present a $500 check to Lori Shandor, CEO of the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County. The check was presented last week at the deli, 3135 Belmont Ave.

“It was so fantastic to partner with Kravitz Deli for National Deli Month,” Shandor said in a news release. “The funds raised will help us continue our work on behalf of the abused, neglected and unwanted animals in Trumbull County. It is looking like we will take in more animals in 2021 than we have in the past five years.”

Kravitz Deli will continue its support of the AWL on National Sandwich Day during the first week of November. Customers who stop in that week and donate to the AWL will be eligible for a chance to win free sandwiches for a year. Weather permitting, the AWL will have an information table and adoptable dogs outside the deli, the release states.
