Give to United Way

In the past few weeks, we have given several demonstrations for United Way of the Capital Region. If you work in the Capital Region, your company may have kicked off a giving campaign for United Way, and you may even have seen one of our dogs.

United Way is a wonderful organization that raises money for the community's needs, and they donate that money to organizations that are working to meet those needs. United Way funds organizations that support families, seniors, children and youth; provide emergency food and shelter; address disease and disabilities; and build stronger and safer communities. They are working to change lives.

Please consider making a donation to United Way. Susquehanna Service Dogs is a partner program with the United Way, and we would love for you to donate to us through the United Way. But all of the partner programs and agencies of the United Way are working to change lives, and no matter which program you choose on your United Way donation form, you will know that your gift is going to an organization that is truly making a difference in people's lives.

We are working to change lives by training service dogs. Team Training is starting next week, when several people will receive their new service dogs and learn how to work together as a team. The moment we bring the dogs out to their new partners, the room is filled with happiness. After receiving her service dog, one woman said, "It's like I have my life back."

We would not be able to change lives with you. Your generous support helps us to specially train service dogs to perform the unique tasks for each person's needs.

If you donate to us through United Way, you won't find Susquehanna Service Dogs in the list of program partners. In order to donate to us, you will need to select Keystone Children & Family Services. SSD is a program of KC&FS, so you can be assured that your donations to KC&FS will come to us.

Donate through United Way.

Thank you so much for your continued support. We wouldn't be able to do it without you.
