JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of the warriors served by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), Pier 1 announced it is joining forces with the veterans charity to help wounded warriors and caregivers express themselves on their individual healing journeys. The effort will combine unique stories with in-store opportunities to give back to those who have sacrificed for us.
"We are so excited about our partnership with Wounded Warrior Project," said Kelly Cook, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Chief Marketing Officer for Pier 1. "At Pier 1, we believe in celebrating the art of self-expression; more importantly – we enjoy celebrating life. We especially want to celebrate the people who put others' lives before their own."
Since 2003, WWP has been a tireless advocate for our nation's finest, improving the lives of millions of warriors and their families. WWP is committed to helping wounded veterans achieve their highest ambition. When they're ready to start their next mission, WWP stands ready to serve.
