Agoura Hills, CA – Albert & Mackenzie, a leading workers’ compensation defense firm in California, is pleased to announce this year’s philanthropic endeavors with a substantial donation to Guide Dogs of America. The firm’s annual charity drive is more than a tradition; it’s a collective effort that strongly aligns with the company’s values of creating positive and lasting impacts on communities.
Guide Dogs of America, driven by the mission to “transform lives through partnerships with service dogs,” stands as a beacon of light for individuals who are blind/visually impaired, veterans, and those with autism. The nonprofit organization breeds, raises, and trains guide dogs while also placing facility dogs in crucial roles within courtrooms, schools, and hospitals.
