PennyLambrightEach year Founder's District presents the prestigious Communication and Leadership award to an individual or local organization that exemplifies the practices of sound communcation and exceptional leadership that is the epitome of the Toastmasters brand.  This year Founder's District is honored to recognize Penny Lambright of Patriots and Paws for her outstanding work in building an organization that provides valuable assistance to the men and women who put thier lives on the line for our country.

Patriots and Paws helps to relieve the burden of stress that our military veterans are feeling by giving them help in the form of home furnishings. Some of these things are as simple as a bed to sleep in, a table to sit at, or dishes to eat with.   Almost all of the veterans who are able to receive housing assistance don’t have the basic items to put in their homes, unless they get them from family or friends.


Patriots and Paws” provides our veterans and active military with home furnishings through the kind donations of others.  This non-profit organization will also unite our veterans with a companionship animal if they want one.  They do this at no cost to the veterans.

Primarily focused in the Southern California area, Patriots and Paws will serve anyone who is or was a part of the U.S. Armed Forces. Help is provided regardless of rank, branch or length of service. The recipients contact Patriots and Paws and provide a “wish list” of what they need.  Based on what they have in stock the recipients come in and shop for free.

You can find out more information about Patriots and Paws by visiting www.patriotsandpaws.org or by following them on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Donations via PayPal are accepted on their website.  You can also call them at 714-323-7229 to arrange a pick up of home furnishings.
