WILLISTON, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs is proud to announce that on April 17, 2019, the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) announced a grant award in the amount of $25,000 to our organization. These valuable funds will be put straight to work, to help us train a medical service dog for a deserving veteran in need.
There is great synergy between our organizations, both determined to make a difference for veterans who are struggling with conditions such as: PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, Seizure disorders, Diabetic alert, and/or mobility issues.
Asked about the grant award, Guardian Angels Founder & CEO, Carol Borden said: “On behalf of the disabled veterans we serve, I wish to extend my deepest appreciation to the Disabled Veterans National Foundation for recognizing the tremendous need to take care of our veterans. Because of your generosity, we are able to provide long term care to another deserving American hero.
