Since the Foundation’s launch, we have served hearty meals to thousands of service members and veterans, we’ve supported the training of PTS service dogs for severely injured heroes and first responders, provided life-changing mobility devices for wounded, aging, ill, and injured veterans and first responders, provided Gold Star Families with relief grants to assist them through trying times, distributed scholarships for military children, and improved the quality of life for veterans by renovating kitchens and dining facilities.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided grants to veteran own businesses, healthcare workers, and Gold Star families in need. In addition, we’ve created resiliency programs for those we serve, such as an annual golf tournament for wounded veterans to enjoy and connect, an annual experience for surviving family members of lost loved ones by taking them out for a weekend of fun, bonding and peer-support where they are able to be with other survivors during activities such as cooking classes and military memorials honoring their lost loved ones, along with other events that promote joy and resiliency. We will continue to develop these events and programs to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our American heroes.
Our goal is to bridge the gap of our nation and the community we serve by creating awareness of the sacrifices made by our military personnel, first responders, and their families; and, in turn, inspire others to appreciate and support the men and women defending our freedom at home and abroad.
