Advanced Disposal Presented a Donation to K9s for Warriors This Morning for $12,500
Richard Burke, CEO of Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, presented a check for $12,500 this morning to K9s for Warriors’ president/founder, Shari Duval, executive director, Rory Diamond and several veterans and their four-legged companions at their K9 campus.
“Advanced Disposal is a company committed to clean communities and being a strong corporate citizen. Even though we are in the business of picking up, we are proud to be able to give back to such a worthy and inspiring organization, such as K9s for Warriors,” commented chief executive officer, Richard Burke. “Many of our team members are also veterans and we recognize and believe in the impressive work they are doing with veterans and their canine companions.”
"A staggering number of veterans returning from combat suffer from PTSD – the invisible wounds of war," said Shari Duval, President and Founder, K9s for Warriors. "To date, we've been able to help over 200 military heroes by pairing them with a service dog that has been trained for their specific needs. We are so grateful for the generous support from Advanced Disposal; this sponsorship helps our organization provide comfortable polo training shirts for our warriors and further empower these veterans to return to civilian life with dignity and independence."
In addition to Advanced Disposal’s financial support, several Advanced Disposal employees have donated in excess of 100 hours of their own time as volunteers in support of K9s for Warriors’ mission.
