Founder: Lynn Molnar and her inspiration, Hero

Several years ago I was working at a local university.
?Lynn Molnar is originally from New Jersey and moved to Maryland to attend Maryland Bible College. Upon her graduation with a degree in Church Ministries, Lynn volunteered to do mission work in Europe. As a missionary, she lived Poland for two years and supported herself by teaching English as a second language (ESL) at the American Language Institute in Krakow. Upon Lynn's return to the States, she became a student at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Humanities.
Lynn has served the community of Maryland for over twenty years through various volunteer capacities including organizing block parties to help inner city children attend summer camp. She also led the initiative to install lights at the Ma & Pa Dog Park in Bel Air. Lynn is dedicated to all aspects of community life, and has served on the Harford County Cultural Arts Board, and the Harford County Human Relations Commission.
Lynn's professional experiences include being an executive assistant at Maryland Institute College of Art, a paralegal at the State of Maryland Attorney Generals Office, as well as a research assistant at the Johns Hopkins. ? Currently, Lynn enjoys her role as president at Thankful Paws.

"It's vital to understand the bond between person and pet," says Lynn Molnar, the founder of Thankful Paws, a mobile pet food bank.

"Some people who don't have pets, just don't get it and they don't understand, [they think] well if you're broke, get rid of your dog. They don't understand the bond," says Molnar. "So we try to educate about the bond between the pet and person."
Since founding Thankful Paws over a year ago, Molnar's on-the-go food bank has evolved and accomplished more than Molnar could have ever imagined. Recently, they expanded by adding a Homeless Hotline.
"This started out as a dream for Lynn and in eighteen months it's grown to what it is now. [Lynn] may not realize everyone that she has helped, but standing back as someone else and seeing it from a different perspective, wow, you can definitely tell just how much it's grown and how the need is out there and how many people we've actually been able to help," says Tammie Riblett, incoming Vice-President of the Thankful Paws' board.
Molnar says the non-profit organization's mission is to provide pet food and supplies to financially unstable individuals and families and provide education and assistance concerning animal welfare and related public health issues.
As of May 2013, Thankful Paws had received over a thousand requests and delivered over twenty-one tons of food to needy and homeless individuals all throughout Maryland, expanding its services by getting more consistently involved in Cecil and Howard Counties, says Molnar.
"We're really starting to work a lot with more homeless people too. It's a heartbreaker, but we're happy that we're able to help them in any way that we can," says Molnar.
The Homeless Hotline was created as a separate contact from their regular online assistance request form and is dedicated only to homeless people with pets due to the fact that most have limited access to the Internet.
"I do find that some of these people do have access to telephones and some of them even have cellphones or they know somebody with a cellphone," says Molnar.
"It was the first time so many people were gathered for the same cause of Thankful Paws and it was just so exciting, for me, to see so many people that have helped along the way and care about Thankful Paws to be there," says Molnar.
Molnar says the organization needs volunteers in local communities to help.

Lynn Molnar, the owner of Thankful Paws in Baltimore (pet food bank - really neat cause!), is an animal advocacy columnist and she wrote a small article about me and you in the examiner and is featured :) http://www.examiner.com/animal-advocacy-in-baltimore/katrina-rios?CID=examiner_alerts_article. It's funny that Lynn has a golden retriever named Hero and he looks like he could be your brother!
