LINTHICUM, MD, October 6, 2020— NFM Lending is proud to be a Sponsor for the 16th annual BARCStoberfest virtual 5k run and one-mile walk and festival on October 23-25, 2020. The event will benefit the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS). This is NFM Lending’s second year sponsoring the event.

BARCS is Maryland’s largest animal shelter and pet adoption center. All proceeds will support the more than 12,000 animals that come through their doors each year that require shelter, food, and medical care. It will also enable them to remain a vital resource to our community through their innovative programs. Funding is more critical than ever, as their fundraising efforts have fallen without the ability to host in-person events due to the COIVD crisis. This event will be completely virtual and will spread out over the course of the weekend, including the 5k run and one-mile walk and costume contest.

“NFM Lending is once again proud to be a sponsor of this year’s BARCStoberfest,” said Gene DiPaula, Vice President of Communications at NFM. “Even though the festival is virtual this year, it sounds like they have a lot of fun activities lined up to raise money for a very worthy cause. Every pet deserves to feel safe and secure and be part of a loving home. The work that BARCS does to make that happen, all the while taking care of those animals while in transition, is admirable and inspiring. We’re excited to partner with BARCS to make that happen.”
