Charitable Giving: Deafinitely Dogs

posted by TrueNorth Companies on Thursday, July 06, 2017

During the month of July, TrueNorth will be raising funds for Deafinitely Dogs. Read on to see how TrueNorth plans to change lives - one service dog at a time. Find out how you can, too!

About Deafinitely Dogs

Deafinitely Dogs is a non-profit organization that enriches the lives of people with disabilities by placing highly-trained dogs, trained specifically for their individual needs. The organization strives for increased independence for their clients and believe strongly in the dog-to-human bond. Many of the service dogs they help train assist those living with invisible disabilities and help their partners live healthy, independent lives.

How TrueNorth Plans to Help

We kick off fundraising efforts next week with a delicious bake sale hosted by TSA and TrueChoices teams. 

Empty your pockets for your favorite TrueNorth pet! Over the course of the week, we’ll display pictures of our staff's adorable pets in the Compass Café. Vote by donating spare change in money jars directly below the pictures. Start saving your pennies! 

You can count on seeing the TrueNorth team sporting denim on the last Wednesday in July, as the office will be collectively participating in our "Casual for a Cause" day to support Deafinitely Dogs. 

Later that week, a trainer from Deafinitely Dogs will visit our headquarters to provide a brief presentation about the dramatic and personal difference a dog can make in a person's life. There will even be time at the end to meet a few pups!

How You Can Help

Having a service dog can make all the difference in a life - allowing an individual to live with more independence and freedom. Deafinitely Dogs is also in need of families willing to help raise, kennel and walk puppies. Donations of any amount can help provide for the purchase and care of a service dog.
