Helen Morton, a longtime friend of Guide Dogs of America, passed away January 16.
Helen, along with her husband Tom, who passed away 11 years ago, supported GDA for more than 25 years. In that time, the couple’s commitment and their generosity made it possible for countless GDA graduates to receive guide dogs. After Tom passed, the Morton family and The Morton Foundation made it possible for GDA to construct a beautiful new graduation area. The new pavilion was dedicated in Tom and Helen’s honor and stands as a reminder of their family’s many generous contributions. Helen will be greatly missed by many friends of GDA as well as our staff.
The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Guide Dogs of America or to The Morton Foundation (100 Pringle Ave. Ste 410, Walnut Creek, CA 94596 or via phone at (925) 287-9201.)
