Credit Union Volunteer of the Year Selects Stiggy's Dogs as Donation Recipient
As part of the Credit Union’s CU Involved volunteer program, one employee was recently recognized for his exemplary work in the community with the first annual Volunteer of the Year Award. As part of this honor, he was given the opportunity to choose a local charity to receive a $500 donation on behalf of the Credit Union. Stiggy’s Dogs of Livingston County was selected as the recipient of this year’s donation.
Stiggy’s Dogs is an organization that rescues and trains shelter dogs to be psychiatric service dogs for military veterans living with posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. The service dogs are trained and deployed at no cost to the veteran and provide a unique method of healing.
“I chose Stiggy’s Dogs as the recipient of these funds because their mission of rescuing one to rescue another resonated with me — they’re a small organization with a big impact,” said Tyler, a Credit Union employee and recipient of the 2016 Volunteer of the Year Award. “By supporting Stiggy’s, you’re able to make a difference for both a dog waiting for its new home as well as a veteran who has served our country and now needs our help.”
The Credit Union is proud to support Stiggy’s Dogs and the veterans who benefit from its services.
