PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Dec. 11, 2015) — TBC Corp. and Ashland Inc.'s Valvoline brand are donating $60,000 to K9s For Warriors, a 501(c) 3 charitable organization dedicated to providing service canines to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disability (PTSD), traumatic brain injury and/or other military trauma incurred from military service post 9/11.
“At TBC Corp., we have a strong desire to positively impact the communities we serve,” said TBC President, CEO and Chairman Erik Olsen. “It is our honor to give back to the veterans who give so much to our country in partnership with Valvoline.”
TBC and Valvoline teamed up in recognition of Veterans Awareness Month in November.
The $60,000 donation covers the cost of a three-week training program for three veterans and three canines, including room and board at Camp K9, a state-of-the art training center and warrior housing facility, training outings and all equipment necessary for training purposes.
