Each month Whitfield & Eddy selects a community organization to support for its "Casual for a Cause" day (a casual dress day for a donation). In February, Paws & Effect, a non-profit organization based in Des Moines, was chosen. This organization raises, trains and places service dogs and therapy dogs for the disabled and for disabled returning veterans. There is no charge to the disabled to receive a dog. Paws & Effect relies almost entirely on community donations.
This is an organization which is close to us since member Megan Antenucci's spouse now has a service dog through Paws & Effect.
Through the generous donations of our members and employees at Whitfield, we contributed over $1200 to this very worthy cause.
