Madison, WI., November 2, 2021 – Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, Fairway Wholesale Lending, and the American Warrior Initiative (AWI) have announced that they are on track to deliver a record 100 service dogs to deserving military servicemembers by the end of this year.
So far in 2021, Fairway has delivered 65 service dogs and recently partnered with the Milwaukee Brewers™ to donate a service dog grant to U.S. Army Veteran Andrew Sievila.
Fairway underwrites all expenses of the non-profit American Warrior Initiative and Fairway employees have donated millions of dollars to AWI, enabling the organization to provide funding for hundreds of service dogs for deserving veterans and active military members over the past five years.
Fairway founded AWI in 2015 as its way to give back to active duty service members, veterans and first responders, and to help local branch efforts to fund initiatives for these deserving heroes of America.
The mission of AWI is to educate, inspire and encourage Americans to give back. The AWI team is on a mission to bridge the military-civilian divide by bringing awareness to civilians all over this country of the challenges facing servicemembers and encouraging servicemembers that there are people who do care.
"In the past six years, Fairway has funded almost 200 service dogs for veterans," said Louise Thaxton, AWI director and co-founder and a Fairway branch manager. "Our goal is to fund 100 service dogs in 2021, up from the 50 that were granted in 2020.
