Stellar Raises $2,000 to Support K9s for Warriors
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 8, 2014) – Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, has raised $2,000 for K9s for Warriors during the company’s “Jeans day” fundraiser.
Stellar employees donated $10 to wear jeans to work for the day, with all donations going to K9s for Warriors.
Located in Ponte Vedra, Fla., K9s for Warriors provides service canines to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of military service post 9/11. The organization trains the dogs and matches them with soldiers, who participate in a three-week residential training program to learn how to work with their service dogs.

“It was especially rewarding to donate to K9s for Warriors, which combines two causes that our employees are passionate about – military veterans and animals,” said Allison Korman Shelton, Stellar Vice President, Government and Public Affairs. “We’ve designed and built numerous facilities for the military, and it’s always rewarding to be involved in projects for our nation’s service men and women.”
The Weaver Foundation is providing a match for all donations to K9s for Warrior and the $2000 raised from the Stellar Employees will now result in a $4000 donation to K9s for Warriors.
