Wounded Warrior Project to Host Veterans, Families for Halloween Fun

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) staff will get into the spirit of Halloween Friday, Oct. 28 by inviting local wounded warriors and their families through their doors for an afternoon of fun and healing.

Wounded Warrior Project staff members will greet trick-or-treaters in full costume Friday as they host a special Halloween event for injured veterans and their families.

Festivities are set to begin at 4 pm. Children will be escorted through the adorned halls of WWP's "not-so-haunted" house on the first floor, picking up treats and goodies at stops along the way. Each stop will be decorated with a different theme, accompanied by costumed WWP team members.

Once the trick-or-treating is over, veterans and family members will be invited to the fourth floor for pizza, games, and the opportunity to connect with fellow warriors from their community and WWP staff members.

By providing fun activities in settings that accommodate warriors with physical injuries or social anxieties, WWP supports their long-term recovery needs. Gatherings like this encourage connections between warriors looking to rekindle bonds similar to those formed in the military and provide a family-friendly atmosphere for warriors to reconnect with their loved ones.
