When my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011, I had the wonderful opportunity to partner with my close friend, Tracey Leinen, to form The Griffin Gives Foundation. We are a philanthropic, not for profit 501(c )(3) foundation dedicated to supporting our military, those effected by debilitating disease and the health and wellness of children. Throughout my life, I have been blessed to have many special people in my corner. They have continued to support me along the way as I have tirelessly pursued my dreams. They have picked me up when I have fallen. They have pushed me to keep moving forward. Working with the foundations below has given me the opportunity to inspire others in the same way.
Co-Founder / Paws Healing Heroes
Paws Healing Heroes was founded by Glassboro native Mark Eberle, an Army Veteran who suffers from the affects of war as well. Mark’s dream is to give back to Veterans who need the assistance of a service dog and provide support with everyday life post war and/or combat.
The Paws Healing Heroes Program was established in 2016 by The Griffin Gives Foundation. The mission of Paws Healing Heroes is to raise money, through community events and donations, to provide service dogs, primarily those in shelters, to Veterans in need.
