TFI Envision Wins 2nd Place


TFI Envision Wins 2nd Place

White Plains, NY — TFI Envision, Inc. has been selected as the 2nd Place Award Winner in the 2014-2015 Journal News Give & Grow Program. TFI Envision donated their creative services to create a full color newspaper ad for the Guiding Eyes for the Blind’s Heeling Autism Program. Heeling Autism is a Guiding Eyes for the Blind Service Dog Program in which its world-renowned dogs are trained to provide safety for children with autism.

The Journal News Media Group is a resource for local news and information in New York’s Lower Hudson Valley. They believe in the concept of “paying it forward” and created the Give & Grow program. It is designed to benefit local charities and non-profit organizations by giving them what they need most – a way to get their message out.

Here’s how the Give & Grow program works: The Journal News reaches out to local agencies throughout the area to select a non-profit of their choice and to design a compelling message that will raise awareness of – and involvement with – that organization. The Journal News runs the ad on a Pro-Bono basis, then a panel of independent judges evaluates all the ads and selects 3 winners.

“We are grateful to The Journal News Media Group for providing this opportunity for non-profits to get the much needed exposure to their vast audience of readers. It’s good for the non-profit and good for the community to learn about these amazing programs, like Heeling Autism,” said Mary Ellen Butkus, Vice President, TFI Envision, Inc.


Guiding Eyes for the Blind’s Heeling Autism Program provides trained service dogs, free of charge, to families with children with autism living within two hours of the organization’s Yorktown Heights, New York headquarters.

A Heeling Autism dog in a family with an autistic child can:

– increase social acknowledgment of the child by his or her peers

– provide companionship

– reduce parental stress

– increase the child’s level of independence, confidence, and social acceptance
