Last year Eastern Shipping Worldwide Inc. made a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in lieu of sending greeting cards to our customers and vendors. The overwhelming positive response we received inspired us to contribute three-fold this year. We are donating to the Wounded Warrior Project again, and we’re also supporting K9s For Warriors and the St. Jude Childrens’ Research Hospital. Let’s all give thanks for the blessings we enjoyed in 2016 and give a little bit more towards a better 2017 for those in need.
Please take a moment to visit the below websites and show your support for these great causes.
The Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001. The program provides support not only for veterans but their families as well, who are often serving as full-time caregivers to their returning loved ones. With the mission to honor and empower, WWP is the hand extended to encourage veterans as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs.
K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our Warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Our goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
ESW would like to thank each of you for your support during 2016. We sincerely appreciate and cherish the relationships we have built together and wish you all a happy, healthy New Year in 2017.
