DURHAM: After 20 years of service, St..John Ambulance organization has engaged over 3,354 therapy dog volunteers, and in 2015 alone St. John Ambulance assisted more than 120,000 people!
In 2018 Ron Moore held his 15th annual ‘Elvis’ Christmas concert to raise funds for the St John Ambulance therapy dog program. His goal is to help fill the overwhelming requests for certified dog therapy teams, and specifically to launch a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), dog therapy program to aid those suffering from PTSD. This includes ‘first responders’ such as; Police, Firefighters, Paramedics, and Military personnel. The success of the 2018 concert has enabled St. John Ambulance of Oshawa to move forward with their PTSD program. The goal of this year’s concert is to raise enough funds to certify seven PTSD dog teams! The concert is free but a free will offering will be taken, suggested amount is $12.50 per person, but any donation is gratefully accepted!
The concert is Saturday,, November 30th at 7 p.m., at Trinity Church, 900 King Street East, Oshawa. For more information you can text 289-939-4878 or email ronmooresings@gmail.com
