Our Dalton Box Facility Sponsors Pet Therapy Program at Peeples Cancer Institute

On May 8th, 2019 our Dalton Box facility makes a sizeable donation to support a good cause in their community. With help from Dalton Box and their partnership with Whitfield Healthcare Foundation, Pet Therapy dogs are now on their way to their new careers at the Peeples Cancer Institute. All therapy dogs are trained and certified through recognized animal pet therapy programs. These furry friends will provide much-needed comfort and support to the patients in a time of emotional and physical stress.

Joe Remillard, general manager of Dalton Box, stresses the importance of the company’s decision to sponsor the program.

“Our employees are dedicated to doing something meaningful for this community,” Remillard said. “Given that a number of our employee families have been impacted by cancer, we thought what better way to use our company’s funds than by investing in care for local cancer patients and their families? We are honored to partner with the foundation to support this program for Hamilton’s Peeples Cancer Institute.”
