LCIF helps the Lions Foundation Launch New Program

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has granted $75,000 (USD) to Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides in support of the Opening Doors to Independence fundraising campaign. The grant is being used for the expansion of Lions Foundation’s services and will help launch the new Diabetic Alert Dog Guide program.

LCIF’s grant will help the Lions Foundation reach its ultimate goal of raising $1 million dollars for the “Opening Doors to Independence campaign”. This campaign will not only introduce the Diabetic Alert program for people with type 1 diabetes but also will renovate the Oakville training school to increase residential space for clients while adding space for training staff.

“We are very fortunate to have the support of Lions Clubs International Foundation for our newest venture and know that this grant will go a long way in helping provide even more Dog Guides to Canadians with disabilities,” says Sandy Turney, Executive Director, Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides.

Lions Clubs International Foundation has a long history of supporting the Lions Foundation. In 2006, they awarded the school with a $50,000 grant to expand the Dog Guide facility in Breslau, and in 2009 they gave a $100,000 grant to build a veterinary clinic at the Lions Foundation’s Oakville facility. The clinic has since been used for countless operations and has gone a long way in keeping future Dog Guides and Dog Guides in training healthy and ready for their important role of assisting people with disabilities.
