Leno entertained a sold-out crowd of 1,900, and funds raised included a portion of ticket sales and supplemental donations collected online and on site at PACK EXPO. The program includes three weeks’ training for the canine/warrior teams at the K9s for Warriors facility in Ponte Vedra, FL. Over 90 percent of the partnered dogs are obtained through rescue groups.
“We’re always happy to support those that have fought for our country,” says Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “Our service men and women have given so much for us. It’s a pleasure to be able to give something back to them.”
PMMI would like to thank Title Sponsors DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymer and Pro Mach, Inc., and Gold Sponsors Bemis North America and International Paper for supporting PACK gives BACK™.
“PACK gives BACK™ is a way to bring the entire PACK EXPO community together for a greater purpose,” adds Yuska.
A link for donations will be active through November at Packexpointernational.com, and donations are always accepted at K9sforWarriors.org
