JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will once again participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the world's largest annual workplace charitable giving campaign. CFC provides an opportunity for military and civilian federal employees to support causes they believe in.
The funds raised through CFC provide WWP the support needed to ensure its programs and services continue to be provided free of charge to warriors, their families, and caregivers. These resources help with mental and physical health, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term support for the most seriously wounded.
The programs and services support both immediate and long-term recovery by smoothing the transition into civilian life and empowering warriors to build support structures. The simple act of attending an event with fellow warriors can reintroduce injured veterans to the unique bonds experienced during military service. Rarely duplicated in the civilian world, these relationships act as a secure bedrock that paves the road to recovery.
"Each of the warriors, caregivers, and family members we serve at Wounded Warrior Project has been touched by the generosity of our supporters," said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. "We serve warriors through life-saving programs empowering them to live life on their terms. The generous donations of our supporters through the Combined Federal Campaign can help us achieve that goal."
The process is easy: between Oct. 2 and Jan. 12, 2018, pledges can be made through an employee's local CFC office using the WWP CFC code #11425. To locate your local office, visit https://www.opm.gov/combined-federal-campaign/find-local-campaigns/locator.
