Tyler, TX (PRWEB) December 30, 2012
Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation donated $30K to Hope For The Warriors® to support the nonprofit’s continued work with wounded service members and military families. The two organizations have worked together to support military families throughout Texas and the nation for five years. Hope For The Warriors® is a national nonprofit organization that supports wounded U.S. service members, their families, and families of the fallen.
Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation (txwoundedwarrior.com) hosts wounded service members every fall in Tyler with their annual Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament. The event provides a weekend of respite for wounded service members and encourages them to explore the therapeutic sport of golf. The city of Tyler provides those attending with an overwhelming amount of honor.
“We are thankful to the Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation for their continued support to wounded service members,” Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President said. “The entire community of Tyler has demonstrated unwavering commitment to our military families.”
Donated funds will support 11 distinct programs that provide a full cycle of care to restore self, family and hope for wounded service members, their families, and families of the fallen.
The mission of the Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation is to raise awareness, to honor, and to empower our wounded United States military warriors, enabling them to assimilate back to daily life upon their return from combat.
The mission of Hope For the Warriors® is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors® is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
