Handling with care: By training service dogs, ACI inmates help others
Feb. 14 Millbury fundraiser fulfills NEADS for veterans
The Mahlerts woke up one morning and decided they were going to do more than donate money to NEADS — National Education for Assistance Dog Services — they were going to make sure another veteran received an assistance dog, just like Holly Mahlert's dad did.
"Did Ollie make a difference in Dad's life? Yes! Big time! Ollie has helped him smile again, there, he's smiling right now," said Ms. Mahlert during an interview.
Princeton nonprofit sells stuffed marathon service dogs
In need of a ‘Rescue’?
Nonprofits are always on the hunt for new revenue, and some of them dabble in retail to bring in extra money.
Think museum gift shops or online stores selling coffee mugs and note cards. Now NEADS, a Princeton, Mass., nonprofit that trains service dogs, wants to bolster its fledgling retail operation — and, if history repeats itself, the item it’s selling won’t stay in stock for long.
Her decision, their life
They were full with newlywed love that brilliant Marathon Monday, fused in joy and then in disaster. Raked by the blast, Patrick and Jess would both lose their left legs. But Jess, harder hit, has held for two years now against the loss of her right. Everything seemed bound up in that choice.
Nate Corddry a die-hard Patriots and Red Sox fan
Living 2,600 miles away won’t stop this die-hard Patriots and Red Sox fan
More proof that you can take the sports fan out of Boston, but you can’t take Boston out of the sports fan.
Actor and Weymouth native Nate Corddry, the younger brother of fellow “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry, left Massachusetts for college 20 years ago, later moved to New York City, and now lives in Los Angeles. But he’s still a Red Sox season ticket holder, despite his home address being 2,600 miles from Fenway Park.
(“I was on the waiting list for 10 years,” he explained, “so when they called me last December and said, ‘Hey, your name came up,’ I said, ‘Oh, Lord. I live in — I accept! I’ll take them!”)
When it comes to the New England Patriots, Corddry says he never misses a game and has three team shirts hanging in his closet (“two Bradys, the home jersey and the throwback jersey, and a Rob Ninkovich”).
So it’s no surprise that Corddry is backing the Pats in the friendly wager he’s made with actor and Baltimore fan Thomas Sadoski on this Saturday’s Patriots/Ravens game.
