Big News from COPE Service Dogs (posted: May 30, 2022)
We appreciate you Kim!
COPE Service Dogs is losing one our biggest community champions. After 12 years of dedicated service to COPE, Kim Jeffery is retiring and moving on to her next chapter in life.
Kim has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for COPE Service Dogs & The Canines in the Classroom Program. Executive Director, Trevor Roberts says “Kim’s fingerprints have been on every single event and fundraiser for the past decade. Her passion for dogs and children is evident in her immeasurable dedication to COPE.” Kim is an exceptional photographer and has lent us her time and talent and has captured the essence of COPE many times over. Kim has been outstanding at building relationships with our supporters and volunteers and has created many long-lasting friendships along the way. Kim has always been there to lend a hand to her colleagues and supporters and her loyalty has been much appreciated.
Kim is excited about her retirement but is committed to COPE and is looking forward to volunteer opportunities. We owe Kim a huge debt of gratitude for all she has accomplished and given to COPE. We wish her the absolute best on her next adventure travelling the world and spending more time with family and friends.
