Pay It Forward partners Fox 5 Dc and Easterns Automotive Group teamed up once again for a special cause. Both parties got wind of an amazing non-profit corporation in Montgomery County, Maryland that was and still is in need of some financial assistance. The mission of Hero Dogs, Inc. is to help our very own United States heroes (veterans) by providing service dogs to them free of charge. This directly affects veterans of the U.S. military and first responders suffering from disabilities. It’s nice to know that this corporation is doing such great work to help our nation’s heroes who have already been through and witnessed so much. Hero Dogs also assists patients that are in need at local hospitals.
Ultimately, nobody wants to be ill or in the hospital. Inova Loudoun Hospital has its very own Hero Dog named Jeremiah that works well with children and is specifically trained to work in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Animals bring a sense of comfort to patients because they are so warm and affectionate. They bring out the joy patients need to realize that everything will be okay.
Fox 5 DC and Easterns Automotive Group just knew they had to help out once they heard about all the wonderful things they are doing to bring smiles to those in need. Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group presented a $5,000 check to Hero Dogs to help the organization continue its amazing mission. Hero Dogs, Inc. is always looking for people to give whether it is monetary or hands on. Click here to learn more about Hero Dogs and how you too can volunteer or donate to this great cause.
