June 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // Greenwood Village, Colo. – Grease Monkey International, Inc. is supporting K9s For Warriors during 3rd Quarter of 2015. Participating Grease Monkey™ centers will be contributing and collecting donations throughout July, August, and September. In 2014 Grease Monkey collected over $75,000 for the organization.
K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. Our goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
“K9s For Warriors is grateful to Grease Monkey™ for their incredible support to our Nation’s Heroes that need our help so badly,” said Shari Duval, K9s For Warriors Founder and President.
Autotex Windshield Wipers is also participating by providing a donation based on the sales of all wiper blades during the summer months. A new camouflage wiper blade design will be available to help honor military veterans and raise awareness for K9s For Warriors.
"Autotex is always looking for new opportunities to give back to our communities. We are very proud to be partnered with Grease Monkey to raise awareness and funds for K9 For Warriors. Our joint efforts are sure to make a big impact on many lives," said Arthur Leardi, WEXCO Industries National Sales Manager.
“The K9s For Warriors organization offers a unique approach to helping our country’s military veterans when they return to civilian life,” says John B. Adams, President & CEO of Grease Monkey International. “We have heard first-hand from program participants about the positive effects that the trained service dogs have on the lives of these heroes and their families, and we are proud to support this outstanding program.”
