CFB Esquimalt saw an increase in working paws last week.
“‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’ increases morale, builds strong communities, promotes good health, and gives folks an opportunity to give in a meaningful way,” said Matt Carlson, CFB Esquimalt Public Affairs Projects Officer and Team Lead for the CFB Esquimalt National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC).
Happy puppy faces greeted CFB Esquimalt Defence Team members during the ‘Paws for Health’ event on Oct. 19. Members could bring their furry friend to work with a $10 donation as part of the NDWCC, running until the end of the year. The campaign benefits charitable organizations of the United Way Southern Vancouver Island and the 16 charities of Health Partners. This year’s NDWCC slogan is ‘Stronger Together’, chosen with the theme of inclusivity and the sentiment of togetherness.
