Thanksgiving Outreach & Turkey Trot for Heroes Help Over 600

Thanksgiving Outreach & Turkey Trot for Heroes Help Over 600

We at Sheep Dog Impact Assistance hope that you had a blessed Thanksgiving! The days leading up to Thanksgiving were busy ones for us, and that's just how we like it! Through the generosity of many people with a giving heart, we are humbled to share that we fed more than 50 veteran and first responder families in need this Thanksgiving. That means more than 350 Sheep Dogs and their family members enjoyed a free traditional Thanksgiving  meal of turkey, ham, sides and pie. We also dropped off food at 30+ fire departments and police stations. Thanksgiving morning brought gorgeous weather for our 9th annual Turkey Trot for Heroes 5K at the Center for Nonprofits in Rogers, Arkansas. Nearly 700 runners, walkers and Wild Gobblers participated in this year's Turkey Trot, which helped us raise more than $12,000! These funds will be used to provide gifts to the approximately 300 children of Sheep Dogs in need through our Christmas Outreach efforts. More photos...

The 2016 Holiday Season is Upon Us – and We Need YOUR Help!

The 2016 Holiday Season is Upon Us – and We Need YOUR Help!

The holiday season is upon us once again. Most Americans live well enough to enjoy the holidays, but for many of our nation's Veterans and First Responders (Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, and EMS professionals), that is not the case. These courageous men and women put their lives on the line for us each and every day, giving us the gift of protection and security. It's time for us to give them and their children the gift of happy holidays. Over the next couple of months, SDIA Teams and Chapters throughout the US will be working hard to raise money and secure donations for our two Holiday Programs benefiting Sheep Dog families in need. The Thanksgiving Outreach program provides a complete traditional Thanksgiving dinner including a turkey, ham, vegetables, sides, and pie. Meals are provided to Sheep Dog families in need of assistance who have applied and been approved by Team/Chapter leadership. Donations in the amount of $60 will feed one family. Our Christmas...

Don’t Miss Out – SDIA’s Patriot Day Events are This Weekend!

Don’t miss out on the fun as we honor the fallen and show appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our nation’s Sheep Dogs – those who serve (or have served) in our military, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and EMS professions. If you live in Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, Northeast Oklahoma, or Eastern North Carolina, we hope you will check out their respective Patriot Day Events! Proceeds from all events will fund SDIA's Holiday programs, so the more money raised means more struggling Veteran and First Responder families will have happy holidays. (Click these links for more information about out Thanksgiving Outreach and Christmas Outreach programs). Held in September each year, SDIA's Patriot Day events honor the lives lost and those injured in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and provides an opportunity to show appreciation for the service and sacrifice of all our nation's Sheep Dogs. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS - Hosted...

Thanksgiving Outreach

Thanksgiving Outreach

Thanksgiving Outreach Our annual Thanksgiving program provides meals for military, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and/or EMS families needing assistance during the holiday season. Families receive a whole turkey, ham, vegetables, rolls, and all the trimmings, including pie! Our greatest need is identifying Sheep Dog families that need our assistance. If you know of a worthy Sheep Dog family, please ask them to complete and submit the application below. The family will then be contacted by SDIA Leadership to verify and confirm the information provided; further instructions will also be given. If you are interested in sponsoring/adopting a Sheep Dog family for Thanksgiving, a $60 donation will provide a family with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We also accept product donations in lieu of cash donations. Please contact KRicker@SheepDogIA.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your contributions to give our heroes a happy Thanksgiving!
