Guide dogs are an important way to enrich the daily lives of people with vision loss. Guiding Eyes for the Blind breeds, raises and trains dogs to perform to be those companions, free of charge. Today, I donated to Guiding Eyes for the Blind. One reason I gave is that its headquarters and training center is right down the street from where I grew up, in Yorktown Heights, New York, where I happen to be staying this week. It was in that location when I was growing up and it’s still there.
