SPRINGFIELD, Va. (March 16, 2022) –Throughout 2022, five veterans will receive a Warrior’s Wish from the national nonprofit Hope For The Warriors. The Warrior’s Wish program fulfills a desire for a better quality-of-life beyond recovery or supports a quest for life-gratifying endeavors for those who have sustained severe physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.
Celebrating 15 years of service, Hope For The Warriors assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming including health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition services.
Since 2006, Hope For The Warriors has provided over $1 million in grants, assisting with 226 wishes.
This class of Warrior’s Wish recipients includes grants to expand hobbies, new kitchen appliances, much needed family time and more:
- A “she” shed for a female veteran and mother of four to enjoy art therapy in;
- Woodworking equipment for a 20-year Army veteran to pursue a woodworking passion;
- Computer for a Marine veteran and his daughter to spend quality time to create 3D animation and videos;
- New kitchen appliances to better suit a family of five’s main hub of their home;
- Honeymoon and vow renewal for high school sweethearts and veterans to strengthen their relationship.
“Granting wishes through the Warrior’s Wish program is always an exciting event for all of the HOPE staff members,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “The goal with each wish granted is to assist with restoring an aspect of life sometimes lost from serving such as restoring hobbies, providing valuable family time together and more.”
