The Woods is heading back to Iowa. Old friends and new projects await.

The Woods has a long-standing relationship with Paws & Effect, a Des Moines-based canine social services organization dedicated to providing well-trained service dogs to US Veterans and children with autism at little or no cost. In the past, we've done collaborated on promotional video, produced still photography, handled brochure design and copy, conducted many interviews with service dog trainers, recipients, and board members, and made our resources available on a variety of occasions.

Kim Spurlock and I are looking forward to returning to Des Moines in September, where we'll be interviewing a new round of service dog recipients, and we'll also be beginning a collaboration with Iowa Remembers, an organization dedicated to memorializing fallen Iowa servicemembers. Always glad to provide our services in support and acknowledgement of so many who have given so much, The Woods is happy to head back to heartland for this special project.
