Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Phillips Charitable Organizations has donated comfort and care bags to the National Military Center in Bethesda, MD for 57 wounded veterans who have served in Afghanistan. This donation is part of the USO-Metro Comfort and Care Bag Program, which provides wounded veterans with amenities to raise their spirits while they recover and rehabilitate from serious injuries.
The National Military Center located in Bethesda, MD usually services 20-30 wounded soldiers at a time. However, due to a rise in injuries and diminishing space in other facilities, 57 soldiers are currently recovering in the medical center. Many veterans are suffering from very traumatic injuries, including multiple amputations.
Because of this, the National Military Center devised a programmed called the USO-Metro Comfort and Care Bag program to boost morale and raise the spirits of our country’s heroes. They reached out to PCO to assist in the program and PCO awarded generously. Phillips Charitable has purchased 57 care packages for our nation’s vets.
One of the main constituencies of PCO includes wounded veterans. Charles Phillips, the founder of the Phillips Charitable Organizations, has served in the military in addition to his successful career on Wall Street. PCO has helped many veterans with a variety of needs from avoiding foreclosure to handling expensive medical costs.
