K9s For Warriors, which trains service dogs for military veterans, is one of the many nonprofit organizations that Summit Contracting Group Inc. helps, but this year’s effort was something special. Summit conceived, built and provided labor and materials for an $8 million facility in Nocatee, where the dogs now live and are trained. Summit employees gave their time and many of Summit’s subcontractors also donated materials and labor.
