“For the past 6 years, Chief Financial Credit Union has been instrumental in its support of Leader Dogs for the Blind and our ability to serve people who are blind or visually impaired. Chief’s donations of time, resources and money exemplify what community engagement and social responsibility are all about, and we could not be happier to have them as partners as we work together to help more people who are blind live a life of confidence, safety and independence,” said Dani Landolt, Chief Marketing Officer at Leader Dogs for the Blind.
