CONWAY — The Bierman Autism Centers of Warren, R.I., recently chose Assistance Canine Training Services (ACTS) of North Conway to receive a $1,000 donation in honor of Freesia, their facility assistance dog. Giving back to the community is a part of a holiday tradition at Bierman and each location team chooses who will be the recipient. The Warren location chose to recognize the work Freesia is doing by supporting ACTS.

Freesia was raised by volunteers Steven Hayden and Monica Philbin of Meredith and completed a two-year training program with ACTS. She was teamed with Maeve London, an occupational therapist working with children diagnosed with autism at Bierman, last November. Since then, Freesia has been changing lives and helping people every day.
