Friday Philosophy: "True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding." (Ellen G. White) ... See MoreSee Less
We want to say thank you to everyone who supported our OFP Grill & Chill Summer Drawing Event!
Thank you to Angel (Store Manager), Yesinia (Community Captain), Jeff, Sefora and the entire The Home Depot Morgan Hill Team for generously donating the awesome Nexgrill 4-burner BBQ in support of our mission and their continued commitment to our community and veterans.
Thank you to documentary filmmaker Vicki Topaz for letting us share her powerful short film, "Veterans Speak about PTSD" and to our clients for bravely sharing their healing journeys after experiencing service-related trauma.
And thank you to everyone in the OFP community who participated, donated and shared! We can't thank you enough for continuing to champion our work and empower our clients.
You helped us raise $7,152 which has contributed to paying veterinarian bills, supplying gas cards, food and providing mental health services to our clients. Every dollar is being put to work and every dollar adds up to making a difference.
The need to serve more clients is growing and therefore so are our funding needs. The cost to fund a life-saving service dog team is $20,000. Currently, we have 43 active teams and we're working hard to bring 6 new teams into the program now. Grants, corporate contributions, employee giving programs, monthly and fundraising donations are all being utilized to get more individuals in need off our waiting list and into our program.
We cannot begin to express what it means when you continue to spread the word, share our mission with friends, family members and colleagues you feel would be passionate about supporting our mission. It is the power of community on every level that makes it possible for our clients to transform their lives. We will continue to share the impact you all are making.
Our team has a lot of fundraising work ahead of us but we continue to be motivated and inspired by what we know is possible for our clients. So again thank you to Home Depot Morgan Hill, Bear, Vicki Topaz and this OFP Community for being our partners in healing. 🙏🙏🙏💜💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
