Funds will help a St. Louis area veteran receive a specially trained PTSD support dog through Got Your Six Support Dogs in Collinsville, IL
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
New Country 92.3 Afternoon Drive team Stacey and Jonah are proud to announce that last week’s “One Pet, One Vet” fundraising initiative was an exceptionally successful campaign.
Stacey and Jonah set the goal of raising $20,000 for Got Your Six to purchase a service dog for a LOCAL vet suffering from PTSD. Got Your Six Support Dogs helps veterans and first-responders who have risked their lives serving our country, and was developed out of the need of veterans and first-responders requesting PTSD service dogs, when all other methods of treatment have failed. The organization’s mission is to help our men and women regain their lives through the healing power of dogs.
Stacey and Jonah blew past the initial goal of raising $20,000 – ultimately, the St. Louis station sponsors and listeners raised $31,250 to purchase a service dog for a LOCAL vet suffering with PTSD, through Got Your Six Support Dogs in Collinsville, Illinois.
“We were blown away by the support we received from our station’s listeners and New Country 92.3 Home Team, in order to support our veterans after they return from service to our country”, according to Stacey and Jonah.
New Country 92.3 listeners can still donate to “One Pet, One Vet” and “Got Your Six” Support Dogs, thanks to “The VA St. Louis Healthcare System - Healthcare for Heroes” link here – https://newcountry923.fm/one-pet-one-vet/.
Program Director Scott Roddy comments, “This is why Hubbard is the platinum standard in broadcasting: our team is given the tools, freedom and guidance to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it most in OUR community.”
St. Louis Vice President and Market Manager John Kijowski adds, “I couldn’t be more grateful for the listeners of New Country 92.3 and of the entire Home team for making this happen in five days.
