"I hope all of our members who visit and shop with us this month stop by the Mission Giveback page to learn about PVA and see the honorable work that they're helping us support." - Alan Cole, GovX CEO

GovX, the online shopping site exclusively for current and former military and first responders, selected Paralyzed Veterans of America as May's recipient of the Mission Giveback donation program. Each month, GovX selects a new service-related cause, foundation, or nonprofit performing work in the military, first responder, or law enforcement communities. Each monthly organization receives a portion of GovX proceeds from all orders placed during the given month.

With more than 42,000 American veterans living with spinal cord-related paralysis, Paralyzed Veterans of America's mission is to create an America where our most severely injured heroes are provided the physical care needed to live a healthy life; receive the benefits they’ve earned through military service; and obtain job training and opportunities for new and fulfilling careers.

"It's a privilege to donate to Paralyzed Veterans of America," said GovX CEO Alan Cole. "I hope all of our members who visit and shop with us this month stop by the Mission Giveback page to learn about PVA and see the honorable work that they're helping us support."

“Paralyzed Veterans of America is pleased to be a part of GovX’s Mission Giveback endeavor to unite communities in support of our veterans,” said National President Al Kovach, Jr. “Our members comprise the most catastrophically injured veterans in the nation, and the donations raised through this program will help us provide services to them, their families, and their caregivers at no cost to them. We thank GovX for partnering with us to provide such a unique and streamlined opportunity for communities to honor veterans.”
