The event, a Veteran’s Day BBQ, will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 13901 Sutton Park Drive South in the parking lot area behind building C. Proceeds will be donated to Patriot Service Dogs, an organization dedicated to helping disabled military veterans gain a sense of independence through their partnership with a well-trained service dog.
“The teambuilding team chose Patriot Service Dogs because we have several members in our Yusen Logistics family who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and we would like to recognize their effort and say thank you by supporting a cause that helps returning veterans in need,” says Yolanda M. Tucker, Sr. Contacts/Credit Specialist, Yusen Logistics.
Hot dogs, hamburgers and other food items will be available for purchase at the event, and volunteers and a puppy in training from Patriot Service Dogs will be in attendance.
“We are honored that Yusen Logistics has chosen to support our organization,” says Susan Bolton, the founder of Jacksonville, FL-based Patriot Service Dogs. “They’re really helping us make a difference, four paws at a time.”
A service dog is individually trained to perform tasks for those with disabilities. Patriot Service Dogs trains their dogs for a full two years to learn more than 80 commands – all to help those veterans with mobility impairments, loss of limbs and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Patriot Service Dogs is currently looking for volunteer puppy raisers in the Jacksonville area. For more information, please contact Susan Bolton at 904-777-1371.
