Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute. We know there are many wonderful local charities, so we’re also providing a list of organizations featured this year on 90.9 The Bridge’s “Give Back Friday” segments. Our hope is that the “Season of Giving” feature becomes something of a holiday tradition here at Flatland, because there are so many groups that deserve the attention, and community needs never end.

Warriors’ Best Friend

Founded in 2013, Warriors’ Best Friend trains carefully vetted rescue dogs to become official service dogs for wounded soldiers who have returned from combat. The goal is to provide emotional and physical support to those who may have post-traumatic stress disorder or other service-related illnesses. In its six years, Warriors’ Best Friend has successfully trained 22 dogs serving their soldiers in the Liberty, Missouri, area.
