Our Project Stewardship teen / young adult group is proud to host a workshop with Guide Dog Foundation to learn about their guide and service dog program and what we can do to support it! We will meet a representative who will bring a guide dog and describe the history and impact of their offering. This is a huge undertaking and the skills needed by trainers, participants in the program, and dogs alike are amazing. Meet these wonderful canine friends and learn about their training, daily responsibilities, and relationships with the individuals who they service.
In 1946, when the Guide Dog Foundation was founded, its mission was simple: to provide guide dogs and training – free of charge – to people who were blind or have low vision. For more than 75 years, the Guide Dog Foundation has trained and placed guide dogs and service dogs to provide increased independence and enhanced mobility to individuals who are blind, have low vision, or other disabilities. The organization began after WWII to assist Veterans returning from war and has extended their services to many others over the years.
We will also assist Guide Dog Foundation via donations of items on their product donation wish list. A $15 will be added to your cart for this purpose. And, together with our young people, we will select which gifts to donate… with gratitude!
