We support those charities that help and support our Nations Heroes, the combat wounded, catastrophically injured and critically ill veterans. Those who have given so much of themselves including their flesh and blood to protect us here at home. These charities provide many types of assistance to our veterans including counseling, specialized wheelchairs, vocational training, home modifications, and financial assistance, just to name a few. Additionally besides supporting these organizations, we also help those local individual heroes right here at home in the Lehigh Valley with these same injuries, by donating thousands of dollars as well.
One of these charities is the SEMPER FI & AMERICA'S FUND (www.semperfifund.org). Since their inception in 2003, over 91% of their funds annually have gone directly to support our combat wounded veterans. This is due to the great volunteers they have and their leadership which is made up primarily of retired U.S. Marine Generals, scholars and business men and women who donate their time and energy to make this organization truly successful.
Since 2013, with your help, we have donated over $123,000.00 to the Semper Fi & America's Fund.
This past year we took on a major project to remodel a local Navy Veteran's home in Northampton, PA. while he is in the Wilkes-Barre, PA. VA Medical Center. We have spent over $15,000 on contractors and materials, along with several hundred of our own hours and volunteers hours to accomplish this mission. Here are some pictures of the progress so far.....
Other Veteran support charities we have donated to this past year include Victory House of Lehigh Valley, Fisher House, Camp Freedom along with several other donations.
Additionally every year we sponsor & donate to Wreaths Across America, honoring our Heroes who have served our great country...….. We also donate our time to this great cause helping with parking, escorting Gold Star families to their loved ones gravesites for presentation of wreaths, with the ceremony itself and finally placement of wreaths on the veterans gravesites.
We have included the form here if you would like to donate to Wreaths Across America
