P.L.A.Y. has always made a point to promote compassion towards animals in both our personal and professional lives. From working directly with local shelters to donating products to animals in need through our Warm Bellies Initiative with the Petfinder Foundation, animal welfare has always been a staple of our business. We know there are plenty of young minds out there that are equally passionate about helping animals in need.
In an effort to encourage them and promote this cause, P.L.A.Y. will be awarding a $1,000 scholarship to a high school student who best exemplifies our core beliefs.
