We know there’s a lot of gift giving going on right now, especially because we’re quickly approaching the holiday season, and we’d like to remind everyone that Harley-Davidson has teamed up with Wouned Warrior Project, to join efforts in raising money to support wounded veterans and their families.
Founded in 2003, the 501(c)3 non-profit organization now has over 20 programs operating, and as described in wikipedia, are broken down into 4 categories: Body, Mind, Economic Empowerment, and Engagement. The Body section of the programs focus on “physical health and wellness”, while the Mind section guides our warriors through the “combat stress recovery program”. Economic Empowerment “helps members meet their educational goals and aim to support their personal health and wellness, mental health and career development”, and finally, Engagement, through “the Alumni program provides long-term support and camaraderie for wounded veterans through events, discounted services and an online community.”
Now through January 11th, 2016, stop in and make a contrubtion to Wounded Warrior Project with any of our cashiers! Next to the Parts and Accessories counter, pick up a sticker showing you’ve made an effort to help out the great cause,
and write your name on a dog tag slip so we can hang it on the wall and show off how supportive our community is of our veterans.
They’ve proudly served our country, and Wounded Warrior Project offers the opportunity for us to reciprocate. Happy holidays, from the Avalanche Harley-Davidson family to yours!
