Marine finance company donates to SDIA

Publish date:

As part of this week’s Giving Tuesday, LH Finance has provided funds for Sheep Dog Impact Assistance group. SDIA said in a statement that it is a charity that provides service programs to assist Sheep Dogs injured in combat or the line of duty (disaster response missions, outdoor adventures, and holiday outreach programs). SDIA deploys Disaster Response teams to areas affected by natural disasters, allowing sheep dogs to use their extensive skills.

The funds will be split between SDIA’s Heroes Shield investment portfolio and continued service programs that assist sheep dogs injured in combat or the line of duty.

The charitable organization was invited by AIM Marine Group, parent of Soundings Trade Only, to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. At the show, SDIA met with representatives of LH-Finance, a finance provider to the boating industry.

“We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of LH-Finance,” said SgtMaj Lance Nutt, SDIA’s president and founder in the statement. “Because we do not accept state or federal funding, our mission to engage and assist our nation’s Sheep Dogs relies on the support of individuals and companies that believe in us. We will be able to assist even more Sheep Dogs in need than ever before with the support of LH-Finance.”
