This June, Hope For The Warriors is excited to announce Frank Prigmore as our volunteer of the month! Please join us in celebrating all Frank has done and continues to do for our organization!
Frank, a former Army infantry and field artillery non-commissioned officer, and both a retired professional and volunteer firefighter, has been a part of the HOPE family for over a decade. Not only has he been a steadfast volunteer and an advocate for veterans and service members, but he has dedicated his time and talents to organizing, and even hosting events, to raise money for our warrior community.
Frank hosted the Wounded Heroes Benefit Concert in Campbell, Texas, for eight years in a row. This weekend-long event on his property, “Clancy’s Saloon and Stage,” raised over $115,000 for HOPE programs and services!
Kristy Warren, a HOPE Transition Case Manager and the Military Spouse & Caregiver Scholarship Lead, nominated Frank for this honor.
“People like Frank help take HOPE’s mission to new communities and networks,” said Kristy. “The Wounded Heroes Benefit Concert that he hosted for many years not only raised funds that made an impact, but he was able to create a community through this concert that rallied around our warrior community and grew our HOPE family.”
After being introduced to Michael Nehlsen, a HOPE family member and Volunteer of the Month recipient, Frank became involved in the Ride For Warriors. Ride For Warriors was started by Michael in 2015 and is a motorcycle journey designed to raise awareness and support for our country’s post-9/11 military community. To date, this ride has raised over $350,000 for HOPE’s Warrior’s Wish and Scholarship Programs! This year, Frank, Michael, and the rest of the team will travel coast to coast for the ride and are set to embark on this journey on June 30. Follow along here!
Thank you, Frank, for consistently showing up for our military community! Your dedication and commitment have helped us ensure that service members, veterans, and their families receive HOPE all across the nation.
“I’ve never met someone with a bigger heart than Frank,” said Kristy. “With every ounce of his being, he believes he was put on this earth to serve others, and each day in some way, he does just that. He loves and cares deeply about all who are in his life.”
Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization as they show our military community the country is behind them.
