LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eve (St. John’s – Lombard, Illinois) pays monthly visits to Oakwood School, a public school in Lemont, Illinois. She makes rounds to special needs classes, spends time with the hearing impaired, and sits in on counseling sessions.
Oakwood’s entire student body’s enthusiasm is infectious as you view a sea of Comfort Dog blue upon Eve’s arrival. On their own, Oakwood designed t-shirt’s and sold them within the school. On Wednesday, October 17, Eve Comfort Dog and her handler were presented a check from the t-shirt sales proceeds to use for her ministry. Oakwood also secured a grant for Eve Comfort Dog through District 113a Educational Foundation.
There are approximately 1,500 students at Oakwood School. During another recent visit, students lined the halls and held up artwork that they made in Eve Comfort Dog’s honor. It was a very exciting yet emotional day for the handler as she saw the love the students at Oakwood School have for Eve Comfort Dog. They received literally hundreds pieces of artwork that day.
