Over the last few months Dogs Helping Heroes with the help and support of our hero teams have focused on getting the word out about our program. We have given presentations, set up booths at events, and been a part of many activities. In April our teams attended the DAV state meeting and a Veterans Luncheon. In May we were a part of the Unbridled Eve Derby Gala, Louisville City Football Club Hero night, The Waggin’ Tail Event and gave a presentation at the Unitarian Church. Memorial Day weekend we participated in the Clarksville Memorial Day Service and Zachary Taylor Cemetery Services. June found our hero teams at Rally Point Kentuckiana and The Bike Run for Veterans. In July our teams traveled to Independence, KY to attend the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Service hosted by the American Legion and were part of the demonstration. August has found us at another Bike Run, a presentation with Athena’s Sisters and multiple presentations at UPS. Pictures from these events can be found on the gallery page.
We have also become members of Amazon Smile, Igive, Walk for a Dog and Kroger Community rewards program, which are all ways you can give to DHH with your normal activities. (For more information on these links, look under the How you can help section).
We are kicking off our campaign for Give Local Louisville on September 15th, mark your calendar to help us on this day and watch for more information on our social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
