Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) is excited to announce that they have been chosen as the February recipient of’s Mission Giveback program. (GovX), the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military and first responders – our nation’s “Sheep Dogs” – hosts this monthly contest allowing GovX members to cast a vote for their favorite service-related organization which performs work or support among Sheep Dog communities. Whichever organization tallies the most votes receives a portion of GovX proceeds from all orders placed in the following month.

During the January voting period, SDIA received the most votes from GovX members. “We are very grateful to GovX and their members for choosing SDIA as the February Mission Giveback winner,” exclaimed SDIA’s founder and president, SgtMaj Lance Nutt. “Every year we strive to give and do more for our nation’s veterans, first responders and communities. This donation holds tremendous power and will directly affect the lives of our neighbors and fellow Sheep Dogs in 2016.” The monies received will be used to fund endeavors within SDIA’s Sheep Dog in Need program.

SDIA is committed to empowering our nation’s heroes, its “Sheep Dogs,” in a way that gives them hope, reminding them that no matter what challenges life may throw at them, life is NOT over. It is just beginning anew. SDIA helps our Sheep Dogs become better citizens in their local communities, and healthier and more productive at work and home. Their Sheep Dog in Need programs remind Sheep Dogs that they have much to give back through continued service opportunities and disaster response missions, as well as outdoor adventures and holiday programs. This “impact assistance” inspires growth, healing and a renewed sense of purpose for all involved. For Sheep Dogs, “Helping Others is a Way of Life.”
