Maine Pointe supports injured service men and women with $13,500 donation to Wounded Warrior Project and $4,050 for Help for Heroes
The Maine Pointe team raised $17,550 to support injured service men and women in the U.S and U.K during our annual All Hands meeting in Jacksonville, Florida.
Maine Pointe is giving back to veterans injured in the line of duty, and their families, with donations of $13,500.00 to Wounded Warrior ProjectÂ® (WWP) in the US and $4,050.00 to Help for Heroes in the UK.
WWPâ€™s mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Through 20 uniquely designed programs and services, WWP works to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nationâ€™s history. In the UK, Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support for wounded, injured and sick veterans and their loved ones.
â€œWe are grateful for Maine Pointeâ€™s support,â€ Adam Silva, chief programs officer for Wounded Warrior Project said. â€œTheir generous donation will help support WWPâ€™s 20 free programs and services, including the Independence Program, which provides a chance for wounded veterans to live their lives to the fullest, on their terms.â€
Maine Pointe pledged funds raised during a team-building event at its annual All Hands meeting. Ex-serviceman Carlos de LeÃ³n, who attended the event on behalf of Wounded Warrior ProjectÂ® and UK-based Maine Pointe Board member, Alex Watson accepted the checks, which were presented by Maine Pointe Chairman and CEO, Steve Bowen.
â€œWe are really honored to make this donation in support of all that our servicemen and women and their families have sacrificed to protect our freedomsâ€, said Steve Bowen.
