Volunteers within the “Helping Hands” program made dog treats for the Canine Companions that will be honored at the “Bark For Life” event. Residents worked for weeks mixing, cutting, and baking dog biscuits in various sizes for the Milton “Bark For Life” event. Residents in the Helping Hands program volunteer in multiple projects that give back to the community. These volunteer projects allow the residents to support their local charities of choice. The therapy process includes problem-solving strategies, memory skills, range of motion, balance, and strength training for the various projects.
The Kramm “Helping Hands” group made over 100 packages of dog treats for the Milton “Bark For Life” event. The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is a fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions of Canine Caregivers.
