"Making A Difference"
Award Winner! - MAGNUM
Magnum with Miss Carol and KSDK Reporter John Kelly
Exciting day! Magnum has won the "Making A Difference" Award from NewsChannel 5 St. Louis. This award is for "an individual who is under the radar but going above and beyond to make a difference in the community." Magnum is the first dog to be nominated! We are so proud. Today they filmed him at Relais Bonne Eau and presented us with the award. It was very exciting to talk about the work Magnum, the fabulous staff, and volunteers do at the Hospice Home. Thank you to everyone at Hospice of Southern Illinois for your support and encouragement of Facility Dog, Magnum. Watch for news story/video at 11 p.m tonight!
