Indianapolis, Indiana – May 27, 2016: American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has donated $10,000 to support Paws & Think. This is the largest single corporate gift in recent history for Paws & Think.
“American Honda Motor Company’s generous gift is just one example of their leadership in the community and devotion to giving back to the conference’s host city,” said Paws & Think’s Executive Director Kelsey Burton. “Speaking on behalf of our Board of Directors, volunteers, and the over 9,000 lives we touch annually, we are profoundly grateful.”
This gift was given as part of the 2016 American Honda Supplier Conference. Each year, American Honda donates to one local non-profit serving the conference’s host city, with this year’s host city being Indianapolis. In addition to the donation, Paws & Think’s Executive Director spoke to over 700 suppliers at the Annual Business Meeting and therapy teams consisting of a therapy dog and his/her handler provided on-site stress relief during the conference.
“Thanks to American Honda’s generous gift, we will continue to impact lives through the power of the human-dog connection,” said Board President, Brett Nelson. “This donation allows us to continue to provide pet therapy and youth-canine programs throughout Central Indiana.”
