The Griffin Gives Foundation announced their new program “Paws Healing Heroes” on Veteran’s Day 2016 in Glassboro, NJ.
The Paws Healing Heroes Program was established through The Griffin Gives Foundation by Glassboro native Mark Eberle, an Army Veteran who suffers from the affects of war as well. Mark’s mission is to raise money, through community events, in order to provide service dogs, primarily those in shelters, to Veterans in need. “My hope is to rescue dogs that need forever homes and have them determined eligible to enter a training program – enabling them to be certified to work with Veterans depending on the needs they have. Knowing that I am able to help and give back to fellow Veterans helps me as much as the dog and the Veteran in need” said Eberle. “In this case, Salfid Rescue needed to find a home for Dixie and with the assistance of the Star Dog Academy in Pitman, NJ the training quickly began and has been on-going for several months. I am looking forward to seeing Dixie and Nick help one another”.
The ceremony was in conjunction the diner providing free meals to Veterans on Veteran’s Day as a way of saying “Thank you for your Service”, an additional attribute started by Eberle.

The Griffin Gives Foundation was honored to welcome the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team back to Montgomery County on October 1, 2016. This event was held at Butch Clemens Park in Lansdale, PA.
This nationally recognized team participated and challenged local softball teams comprised of firefighters, police, and veterans during a round-robin tournament. This year, the Montgomery County Police Team walked away with bragging rights from this year’s tournament.
This is the second visit for the nationally recognized Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. Dennis Wince, the team’s General Manager, was thrilled with the outcome thanking The Griffin Gives Foundation for all they do for Military Families. “On behalf of our entire team, thank you for recognizing the families who support us day in and day out to be the men and woman we are. Without them we are nothing and we appreciate your honoring them, inviting them and bringing your community together to Thank us All for our service to this country”.
The Griffin Gives Foundation looks forward to the opportunity to bring the team back in 2018.
We could attempt to request a million dollars from a potential investor, donor or sponsor. Instead, it is our hope to find ONE million people to give us ONE dollar. This idea comes from the father of our co-founder Hank Baskett, III. Mr. Baskett tells a story of meeting a waitress, who after hearing his story of wanting to rescue children from child abuse, gave him her last dollar. He knew her one dollar could begin to change lives. With that thought, we began our campaign to find one million people who would donate one dollar.It is a simple “Pay It Forward” concept and we are asking for you to BE ONE OF A MILLION.
Your contribution will support an event, a program, an organization and help us continue our mission. Our agenda includes supporting the fight against ALS through the Mark McMillian Celebrity Golf Classic, helping veterans get out and socialize through a NFL Tailgate experience, creating retreats for firefighters, funding a nationwide anti-bullying campaign and continuing to raise awareness beside the efforts of the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation.
We need ONE DOLLAR from ONE MILLION PEOPLE. Please help, pay it forward and watch your ONE DOLLAR change lives through The Griffin Gives Foundation.
