Hope For The Warriors invites the nation to assist veterans with several initiatives this Veterans Day
SPRINGFIELD, Va. (Nov. 10, 2016) – With Veterans Day only one day away, Hope For The Warriors and its partners are providing several ways for Americans to do more than just salute veterans.
- During the month of November, supporters can honor a veteran with a monetary donation to Hope For The Warriors. Thanks to the John Stewart Morton Jr. Gift Matching Challenge and the publishers of Semper Cool, donations will be matched up to $30,000 bringing the total impact to $60,000. Donating today doubles a gift and allows an individual to honor a veteran on Hope For The Warriors’ Wall of Honor.
- Additionally, Hope For The Warriors is sharing 10 ways to honor a veteran via its social channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with suggestions such as supporting a veteran-owned business, displaying the American flag, donating in honor of a veteran and more.
- Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harveys and Winn-Dixie stores, and the Southeastern Grocers Foundation are organizing a Veterans Day Wall of Honor community donation program together to benefit Hope For The Warriors. Now through Nov. 15, customers and associates can make a donation at checkout. In addition, they will receive a dedication card to honor a military hero on the Wall of Honor in each store.
- Now through Nov. 13, individuals in the Midwest also can support Hope For The Warriors by participating in the Hy-Vee Homefront Round Up. The Round Up program allows customers to round up their grocery bill to the nearest dollar—or any amount—with the proceeds supporting Hope For The Warriors and other designated Hy-Vee Homefront organizations. Hy-Vee is matching customer donations up to $100,000.
“This Veterans Day and every day, it’s imperative that we do more than salute our veterans,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of Hope For The Warriors. “We need to continue to assist military members as they transition to their post-combat lives. It’s the least we can do in light of their sacrifice to keep us safe and free.”
Celebrating 10 years of service, Hope For The Warriors is a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope for veterans, service members and military families.
Funds raised for Hope For The Warriors benefit veterans, service members and military families through a variety of programs including clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation, community and military relations and transition services.
