The Dumfries Health Center (DHC) staff members donated $1,000 each to two organizations in support of our military heroes and families.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) was created in 1980 as a promise to our fallen heroes that their children would be taken care of, focusing on college scholarships and educational and family counseling. Their goal is to ensure that children of fallen warriors receive full financial assistance to attend an accredited 2 or 4 year college, university, technical or vocational school.
The Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) also received $1,000 from the Dumfries Health Center. The PVA fights for better healthcare and benefits, aid in the search for a rewarding career, and provide the path to adventure through adaptive sports. They also provide education to medical facilities and clinicians about spinal cord injuries and are dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis.
The Dumfries Health Center serves our nation’s heroes and their families. There is a close bond with the patients and a strong sense of pride and dedication to be able to serve those who serve our nation. It is because of the strong ties to the military and the continued support of our veterans that the SOWF and PVA were selected as donation recipients for 2014.
