22 Jul How Precision’s Clients Fuel Our Community Involvement
Precision Contractors would like to thank our clients and colleagues like Dutch Bros. Coffee, Rogue Development, Global Pacific Properties, and Furniture Row (just to mention a few) for the work they have awarded our team over the years.
In addition to giving our group the opportunity to deliver multiple construction projects, each of these investments has had a broader impact on our communities. These investments made by our clients and colleagues create dozens of new jobs and new revenue as they become a part of the neighborhood.
The ongoing trust our clients and partners place in Precision also gives us the means to live our company value of “we will give back and support our charities.”
We find creative ways to contribute time and financial support to a few special nonprofit partners that align with our company culture. One of the nonprofits we have been a primary sponsor of for years is the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation (CHF), and we wanted to share some recent good news from their hard-working team. CHF supports individuals, families, and communities affected by epilepsy and SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).
How getting a dog can change everything
One of the main projects at the foundation is placing seizure-response dogs with patients.
A properly trained seizure-response dog can transform the day-to-day life of families who have someone who lives with seizures. These new canine family members give parents peace of mind and give kids the confidence to deepen their engagement with the world.
The obstacle several families face is that one of these dogs can cost thousands of dollars to train properly. The support Precision provides CHF helps remove this financial strain and puts the focus back on finding the right dog for the right family.
Two new Precision seizure-response dogs will join their new families in the next few weeks.
Marissa and Julianne
Marissa is in grade school and will be going to camp in Nebraska for two weeks to meet the dog that will be coming home with her. The first few days will include classroom time to learn the commands she will need and when to use them. Then she will get out in the real world with her dog to learn how they can work together. At the end of camp, Marissa will have the skills she will need to handle and care for her new friend.
Four other Precision dogs will also graduate from this camp class. We will follow up with more information once they get placed with their families.
Julianne is a single mom, had a bad experience with a different seizure-response dog trainer, and CHF stepped in to help her. Julianne’s new dog is named Kusko, and he is a two-year-old golden retriever. He is the handsome fellow at the top of the page. Kusko will be coming home with Julianne in early August. Kusko demonstrated the ideal personality to be a service dog when he was an eight-week-old puppy and has been in training ever since.
Support The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation’s first Virtual Starlight Gala
Like many nonprofits, the team at CHF rely on their annual gala to raise funds. The 2020 edition of The Starlight Gala will be a virtual event on Saturday, July 25, 2020, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm.
There is no admission charge to attend; anyone can join the fun if they have an Internet connection. There will be live and silent auctions, inspiring updates about from CHF families, and the evening will end with a hilarious performance by comedian Nick Arnette.
The event will be held as a Zoom Meeting (the ID is 876 2300 2499 and Starlight the password). The event will also be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
When things get tough, the tough get creative, and “tough and creative” are perfect words to describe the team at the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation.
We are excited to support this unique event and hope you to see you online this Saturday, July 25th.
