Over $83,500 raised!



California Bowling Writers has adopted a new charity!
by Mary Lynly, CBW Publicity

”Four paws, two feet, one team”—

Operation Freedom Paws nonprofit organization was founded by “California Bowler and Veteran” Mary Cortani in 2010 and has provided service dogs and training support to veterans at no charge and others who suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, complex PTSD, traumatic brain injury and other physical, neurological, psychological and mobility needs. According to experts, service dogs help empower people with disabilities to live quality lives.

Operation Freedom Paws carefully matches clients with their specially chosen four-legged companions, most of which come from rescue shelters. The partners then begin a 48-week program which trains the clients to train their own dogs. At the end of the program, they’re certified together as service dog teams.

The charity for 2018 kicked off on June 10, at the CUSBC meeting – Make donations payable to CBW and mail to Treasurer Tina Martin, 57 Shields Lane, Novato, CA 94947-3877.

Help CBW support this worthwhile charity.
