The Woman’s Club of Cypress has donated two checks totaling $3,800 to Patriotic Service Dog Foundation. The foundation trains and provides service dogs to veterans suffering the effects of PTSD and other disabling injuries. There is no cost to the veteran.
At a club meeting, representatives from the foundation were on hand to receive the donation. Representative, Judy Lipiz, a puppy trainer, brought her current trainee, Cordelia Cook, also known as CC. Veteran, Jim Hardin, was accompanied by his dog, Howie. Both expressed their appreciation for the funds, which are needed for raising, training, and funding the continued support of program canines.
The funds for this project were raised through sales of a cookbook filled with more than 300 recipes, including a few for homemade dog treats. Recipes in the book were contributed not only by members, but also include submissions from NatGeo TV stars Dr. Jan Pol and Dianne Pol; The Honorable Richard V. Spencer, Secretary of the Navy, The Pentagon; Ellyn Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Office, The Pentagon; Cypress Policy Department, and Orange County Fire Authority.
For only $27 including shipping and handling per copy, members of the public may purchase a cookbook and know that their contribution will be used to fund the training of a service dog to benefit a veteran. The book makes a wonderful holiday, wedding shower, or other gift item.
For more information, or to purchase a cookbook, contact the club by email at WCCypressCA@gmail.com, or call Cookbook Chairman, Sherre Yurenko, 714-827-5203.
