Military & K9 Project 2018

In honor of Memorial Day this year, we decided to support our troops - both human AND canine! We collected non-perishable items for our soldiers stationed overseas, including toiletries, entertainment and games, snacks, and dog toys and chews. Enthusiastic participation by the entire team here at GOFER, combined with generous donations from our vendors, made this drive a success.

 

Our service personnel volunteered for dangerous work in extremely challenging conditions, all to help preserve the peace and comfort that we often take for granted here at home. They definitely deserve our support whenever we can give it!

 

The Unforgotten Haven is a great organization, and their Military and K9 Project is a wonderful cause. We urge everyone to support it. The Unforgotten Haven takes donations year-round, so be sure to get in touch with them if you'd like to help out!

    • Balls/ toys/ chews
