We are proud to bring attention to this important organization and the incredible work it does.

Cornerstone Relocation Group, a full service global mobility company, will host Monty, a very special golden retriever assistance dog from North Star Foundation, at the Worldwide ERC’s Global Workforce Symposium in Washington D.C., October 3-5, 2012.

A key Cornerstone value is social responsibility and the company has chosen to support North Star Foundation in its efforts to place service dogs with children whose challenges range from autism to serious medical conditions to grief over loss of a parent. North Star also offers a veterans program where dogs provide comfort and companionship to returning military personnel.

“We value our position as a vital member of our local community and the valuable role that it plays within the lives of our employees, their families, and the interwoven fabric of society as a whole. We are proud to bring attention to this important organization and the incredible work it does,” said Janelle Piatkowski, president and CEO.

After his appearance in the Cornerstone booth at the Global Workforce Symposium, Monty will be placed with a Virginia family whose four-year-old daughter suffers from a breathing disorder that requires a portable oxygen tank to help her breathe. After acclimating with the family, Monty will be fitted with a special vest to carry the oxygen tank and will be the girl’s constant companion, even accompanying her to school.
