The Boca Raton Airport Authority presented a $7,000 donation to Vets Helping Heroes, which provides financial support for service dogs to help active-duty and retired members of the military recovering from physical and psychological challenges. The funds will be used to train future service dogs that are given to clients at no cost. ‘We are honored to provide Vets Helping Heroes with this donation as a way to honor those who served and help carry out their mission,’ airport authority Executive Director Clara Bennett said.
