Bloomfield, CT (PRWEB) November 04, 2016
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation announced that the organization has received a $23,000 donation from the Allied Printing Services Charitable Foundation 9th Annual Golf Tournament to support its life-changing guide dog mission.
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization based in Bloomfield and Wilton, Connecticut that promotes increased independence to men and women who are blind by providing them with exceptionally-bred and trained German Shepherd guide dogs.
Fidelco is proud of our partnership with the Allied Printing Services Family. The funds received from the Allied Printing Services Charitable Foundation Annual Golf Tournament help Fidelco provide its elite guide dogs and world-class services to blind citizens in Connecticut and beyond.
“It takes two years, 15,000 hours and $45,000 to produce and place each Fidelco guide dog, and they’re given at no cost to our clients, said Fidelco President and CEO Eliot Russman. “Thanks to the Allied Printing Services Charitable Foundation, Fidelco is able to continue its important work of providing men and women across North America who are blind and extend our 50-year tradition of changing lives.”
The partnership between Allied Printing Services Charitable Foundation and Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation – two organizations created and flourishing in Connecticut – is forever changing the lives of men and women who are blind.
