Mandarin Garden Club's Thursday Crafty Ladies toured the new K9 For Warriors facility last week. The Crafty Ladies Group raised funds to help support this worthwhile organization and presented a check to them during the tour. Barbara Price, Joyce Datz, Sonia Jacobson, and all of the members of Crafty Ladies are to be commended for their efforts in supporting our veterans.
K9s for Warriors pairs rescue dogs with military veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress, brain injury, and military sexual trauma post 9/11. They provide in-house programs to qualified veterans with professional canine trainers and dogs that will become a service dog for an American hero. This approach helps each veteran to recover and return to civilian life with independence and dignity. There is no cost to the veterans for this program.
The Thursday Crafty Ladies went out to lunch together after the tour and had a fun day together.
