JACKSONVILLE, Fla.,(September 1, 2015) – National veterans’ service organization (VSO) and nonprofit Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will once again participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace-charity campaign. CFC utilizes almost 200 campaigns nationwide and overseas to raise millions of dollars each year for eligible non-profits. CFC provides the perfect opportunity for military and civilian federal employees to get involved by supporting causes they believe in. Last year, over $5 million was raised through the CFC campaign for WWP.
The money raised for WWP through CFC has helped fund over 20 programs that save lives – all free of charge to the warrior, their family and caregiver.
Pittsburgh, Pa. (September 1, 2015) - When Robert Anderson retired from the U.S. Army, his body served as a constant reminder of the wear and tear that can only come from over a decade of military service. His knees were regularly in pain from an injury suffered jumping out the back of a helicopter in Iraq, while his shoulders ached from years of labors associated with serving his country. Additionally, he suffered the invisible wounds of war, battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
As a result of his PTSD and physical limitations, Anderson began to gain weight and felt like he lacked a sense of purpose. It wasn’t until he discovered the programs and services available to him through Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) that he realized his potential instead of his limitations. By attending a Cleveland Browns game with his fellow injured service members through the WWP Alumni program, Anderson took his first steps on the road to recovery.
HOUSTON, Texas (August 25, 2015) -- Houston Astros pitcher Scott Feldman hosted a group of injured veterans and their families for Thursday night’s baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) helped make the night possible as part of its Alumni program. The program ensures injured service members stay connected with one another. It is part of the 20 free programs and services provided by WWP to help honor and empower Wounded Warriors.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.(August 25, 2015) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is officially serving more than 400 of this generation’s most seriously injured veterans and their caregivers through its Independence Program (IP), an innovative program created to help injured service members and veterans design their own paths from surviving to thriving.
IP is a partnership between WWP, the warrior, and his or her family or caregiver, and is uniquely structured to adapt to their ever-changing needs. IP pairs warriors who rely on their families and/or caregivers because of moderate-to-severe brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or other neurological conditions with a specialized case manager to develop a personalized plan to restore meaningful levels of activity, purpose, and independence into their daily lives. For many, this is an opportunity to participate in the types of daily tasks and meaningful activities others take for granted.
