Wounded Warrior Project Challenges Tampa Bay Community to Give Big

TAMPA BAY, Fla., April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- What if there was a day, once a year, when Tampa Bay residents could rally behind local community foundations to support their favorite charity? There is – and on May 2, "Give Day" returns to Tampa Bay for its fourth year. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will be among the nonprofits registered to participate in the 24-hour online giving challenge, which is hosted by the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay.

WWP serves warriors through programs that assist them with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term care for the most seriously wounded. Programs and resources are free of charge to those WWP serves thanks to generous donors. Warriors are empowered to live life on their own terms, mentor fellow veterans and service members, and embody the WWP logo by carrying one another along a path toward recovery

"In many ways, the communities where our warriors live and work can have a significant lasting impact on their recovery," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "Community members interact with these injured veterans daily and see their needs. That gives them a chance to understand some of the challenges warriors face when returning to civilian life, but also where they can support those Wounded Warrior Project serves. Events like Give Day Tampa Bay can make all the difference; we're extremely grateful for the past generosity of the Tampa Bay community. We're excited for this year's event, with the community once again helping fuel Wounded Warrior Project's mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors."
