Entrepreneur Program Blog / Sandbox Entreprenuer Helping Our Local Veterans


A year ago, Trisha Blanchet of Chelmsford approached the Sandbox with the idea of training shelter dogs to work as service dogs for our local veterans who suffer from illnesses such as Posts-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). After winning $10K at our Winners Showdown Pitch Contest and participating in our 2013 Winter Accelerator, she transformed that idea into Operation Delta Dog!

On November 9th, Trisha will be holding her first-ever fundraiser in Carlisle, MA to raise funds for local disabled veterans who are in need of a service dog. This family-oriented event will include refreshments, kids’ activities, a silent auction, and a scenic route to walk/bike on.

Be a part of this opportunity to support a local entrepreneur and her great cause!
