Confluence Crush Roller Derby is committed to giving back to the various communities which we belong, most of which are in the Metro East, Illinois vicinity. At each of our home bouts in 2015, we will be raising money for Pound Pets, Inc. Since February of 2014, Pound Pets has been operating as an animal rescue and community outreach program in Granite City, IL. In addition to taking in, fostering, rehabilitating and adopting out pets, their mission is also to educate the community of Granite City, IL and surrounding areas of the importance of spay and neutering. They also provide food for those who are having a hard time feeding their pets as well as distribute straw and dog houses for those animals that are living out in the elements. Their goal is to assist the community if they are having problems to keep the animals from ending up at animal control.
