On National Philanthropy Day, we recognize the many great contributions of philanthropy and our members who make a difference in their communities and the world through kindness and generosity.
IAM members are committed to supporting some of North America’s premier charitable organizations by raising funds and getting involved to raise awareness of their causes.
For many years, the IAM has been a proud supporter of Guide Dogs of America/Tender Loving Canines, which has helped blind men and women recover their ability to move freely and regain independence through partnership with well-trained guide dogs.
The IAM helps to support our favorite charity, GDA/TLC by raising funds through charity events that draw members from across the United States and Canada.
IAM members are proud to give time & money to @GuideDogsGDA, which provides guide dogs free of charge to blind and visually-impaired men & women. Director Russ Gittlen announced today that GDA will donate dogs to service members with PTSD & children w/ autism. #IAMtranspo19 pic.twitter.com/PmnEsJ38dd
