Charity Champions, Beacon

Beacon High School's Students Against Destructive Decisions Club ran a school district wide photo contest to raise funds for Puppies Behind Bars.  The program, which includes the nearby Fishkill Correctional Facility, sees prison inmates train companion dogs for Veterans returning from combat zones, suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. The S.A.D.D. Club is an Optimum Community Charity Champion, and in addition to the $2,400 raised by the Picture Perfect Pets photo contest, Optimum Community donated $1,000 to Puppies Behind Bars.
