The Wish Farms Family Foundation has set aside funds to donate to our employee’s favorite charities. As part of our ongoing effort to make an impact in our community, we want to learn about the causes that our pixies care about. Each month, The Wish Farms Family Foundation reviews employee nominations and chooses a different organization to donate to. For the month of November, $1,000 was donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
About Wounded Warrior Project:
More than 52,000 servicemen and women physically injured in recent military conflicts. 500,000 living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder. 320,000 experiencing debilitating brain trauma. Advancements in technology and medicine save lives – but the quality of those lives might be profoundly altered. The numbers speak for themselves, because not every warrior can. With the support of our community of donors and team members, we give a voice to those needs and empower our warriors to begin the journey to recovery. Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey. And for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different. We are here for their first step, and each step that follows. Because we believe that every warrior should have a positive future to look forward to. There’s always another goal to achieve, another mission to discover. We are their partner in that mission.
“I’m a fifth generation military brat, and although I never planned on enlisting. I was still a part of the military in a way and was taught to respect and help whatever veteran I crossed paths with. Every year since my great-grandfather’s passing, my family and I donate a box of supplies to soldiers overseas and a small sum to the WWP in his name to honor his memory. Now, I want to include my Wish Farms family as part of the tradition.”
