This will be one of many emails you as a member will be receiving in the weeks to come to inform you of various outreaches and news regarding the Pet Prescription Team.
If you are not checking your emails or haven't received any communication from our organization please check your spam folder or the forum for updates that have been sent in the past few weeks.
Many of you have asked if there will be a Pet Prescription Team meeting and as of this date we have not secured a meeting site. The fee at the Gymnasiums is way out of our budget and until we can find another location we will be communicating through emails.
Below is a visitation we are needing a large group of volunteers for in May.
A few months back I received a call from the President of the Amazon Affinity Group for Mental Health & Well-Being. He shared with me his goal and role at Amazon is to raise Mental Health awareness for their nearly 5,000 Associates through assistance programs, community partnerships, on-site events and meaningful interactions with Associates suffering from Mental Health concerns to help remove the stigma attached to Mental Health.
In the month of May is nationally known and recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month. His team would like to host a large-scale event on site for all of their Associates. They had heard about our work with Disneyland in their Wellness program and reached out to us. They would love to do this by partnering with us to bring our amazing therapy dogs to their site. They are a large Amazon building with multiple shifts. In order to maximize participation they would love to schedule our event on Wednesday 5/17 between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm as this would provide their front half, back half, days and nights teams the opportunity to stop by. The first shift does not end until 4:30 so the first 30 minutes would be to acclimate all parties to the areas where we will be setting up to ensure the environment is perfect for our team.
As I mentioned above, their site is very large. They have two main entrances/exits. Each of these areas has a large meeting room that we would be setting up to house the event. The west side accounts for approximately 30% of the Associates while the East side accounts for 70%. They would like to set the rooms up according to volume.
I am writing to you several weeks in advance knowing that if you are interested in participating we will communicate often and lock in the details as we approach May.
If you would be willing to help provide this visitation to Amazon could you please respond to this email.
