2017 Charity of Choice
First Allied’s 2017 charity of choice is Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), a nationwide non-profit organization devoted to providing highly trained assistance dogs to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. Their work provides service dogs to help perform daily tasks; hearing dogs for partners who are deaf and hard of hearing; facility dogs for clients in education, criminal justice and healthcare settings; and skilled companions for partners with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities. Funds raised will support breeding, raising and training these impressive four-legged partners. First Philanthropy raised $23,050 for Canine Companions for Independence in 2017.
