3rd Qtr. 2019 – MEN’S HEALTH
In the work place there are grandfathers, fathers, husbands, brothers, sons, nephews, and friends, to name a few. Men’s health is important to all of the people associated with the above relationships. Grandchildren, children, wives, parents, and friends all want these significant people in their lives to be around as long as possible. Getting regular medical attention, being aware of your body and more importantly – any changes in your body – eating well, and exercising are just a few ways to care for your body and the family members in your life. Transcor Recycling wants to support men’s wellness through our community outreach for 3rd quarter. The men who work for us, and who are in our lives, are very valuable. So, we want to keep these treasures healthy.
2nd Qtr. 2019 – VALOR SERVICE DOGS
Valor Service Dogs is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization that helps post-9/11 wounded veterans regain their independence, return to civilian life, and maintain successful partnerships through the training and placing of mobility assistance and PTSD service dogs. Additionally, we bring awareness and education to the general public on service dogs and the laws that allow service dogs to be active members of society.
This is an expensive undertaking. Each service dog will be placed with a Puppy Coach for two years of training. From start to finish, each service dog in training will cost approximately $18,000. This includes the cost of the puppy, food and treats, vet expenses, training supplies and cost of training. All donations go towards the raising and training of these service dogs, with a small portion set aside for promotional and educational activities to spread the word.
