Fridays with FAITH – Meet Shannon McCraw, a faithCares Monthly Sponsor
BARK it up FAITH-ful Friends! It’s time to meet one of our PAW-some monthly sponsors for faithCares veteran team, Ben Miller and RED! This means that RED’s monthly food and supplies are covered by her generous donation each and every month. This allows maCares the flexibility to help even more teams!
Shannon McCraw met Ben and his first service dog, FELIPE, back in 2015 at The Fitness Center at Kernersville. It was Veterans’ Day and maCares was onsite spreading awareness about us service dogs. As an avid animal lover and advocate for veterans, it was love at first BARK for Shannon. She quickly developed a friendship with them, and became a sup-PAW-ter of maCares’ initiatives.
Shannon even attended FELIPE’s 7th birthday party, and later that year threw herself a 60th birthday party and accepted donations for maCares in lieu of gifts for herself – how WOOF-tastic is that! Upon FELIPE’s sudden passing in October of 2019, Shannon was devastated for Ben but maintained a PAW-sitive outlook. She was overjoyed when he was matched with RED in June of 2020 and decided to sponsor this new team by covering the monthly food and supply expenses for RED!
We are so thankful to have wonderful sup-PAW-ters like Shannon join the maCares family! If you are interested in sponsoring a team’s monthly food and supply expenses, please email us at weCare@macares.org or call 336.478.4086 for all the de-TAILS!
