Along with food and vendors, nonprofits made an appearance
at Saturday’s Kraut Creek Festival in Boone.
One particular crowd pleaser was
the New Life Mobility Assistance Dogs booth. NLMAD specializes in the rescue
and training of shelter dogs to assist the disabled. A dog was on hand to
accept donations from festival guests. The organization fills a great need- one
that volunteers are excited about. In North Carolina, approximately 214,664
people between the ages of 16 and 64 live with disabilities that cause mobility
Other groups represented included Wine to Water and
Political Action Committee Citizens for Change.
