On May 8th, 80 volunteers from Honeywell and Cooper High School joined forces to make improvements for Can Do Canines, an organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs. Volunteers spent the day installing new kennels, clearing land for training and recreation spaces, creating a walking trail, repairing fencing in the exercise yard and completing other landscaping and repair tasks around the facility in New Hope.
“Can Do Canines brings greater freedom, independence and peace of mind to our clients and their families by creating a mutually beneficial partnership with a specially trained dog matched to their specific assistance needs,” said Alan Peters, Executive Director of Can Do Canines. “In 2014, Can Do Canines is celebrating 25 years of training and placing assistance dogs in our community, and we have benefited a great deal from the support of volunteers over the years. The work performed by Honeywell and Cooper High School will go a long way to enabling us to continue to train dogs and serve clients in need for years to come.”
The work at Can Do Canines is Honeywell’s 35th Rebuilding Together project that has been completed between Honeywell Hometown Solutions and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities. We are extremely proud of our long-standing partnership with Honeywell. Thank you to everyone from Honeywell and Cooper High School for volunteering with us!
