Warrior Weekend Endowment Fund
The mission of the Warrior Weekend Program is to provide a weekend of rest, relaxation and fun for those wounded heroes, and their spouses and families, who are stationed at Military Medical Centers, recovering from wounds sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan. The idea behind the program is to get these heroes and their families out of the hospital environment and place them in a relaxed and enjoyable setting for a weekend. During the weekend, we schedule activities for them, but the choice is theirs to participate or just relax and reconnect with their families.
The normal operation of the program is to pick up the troops on Friday at noon, and take them to a resort area on the east coast for a weekend of fun and relaxation. They are put up in major hotels or motels with their own rooms. They are taken to top-quality restaurants, shown a good time and have different events are scheduled for their entertainment, if they are interested. If some of the troops would rather just spend time relaxing and being together, that is their choice. The weekend is theirs to enjoy and at no cost to them. After spending the weekend, they are transported back to their duty station on Sunday evening.
This program is small and personal and there are no plans to make the program into a large operation. There are no employees in this program. We are all volunteers. All funds raised go 100% to the program.
The key feature of the program is that it is self sustaining and self supporting. The program operates with the donations received from various individuals, companies, corporations and various veterans’ organizations.
The program completes on average seven weekend trips each year. We have brightened the lives of many of these troops and their families, aided in their recovery process, and have made many friends.
